Wireshark Wireshark is a free and open-source packet analyzer. It is used for network troubleshooting, analysis, software and communications protocol development, and education. Originally named Ethereal, in May 2006 the project was renamed Wireshark due to trademark issues.[4] Functionality[edit] Wireshark is very similar to tcpdump, but has a graphical front-end, plus some integrated sorting and filtering options. Wireshark allows the user to put network interface controllers that support promiscuous mode into that mode, in order to see all traffic visible on that interface, not just traffic addressed to one of the interface's configured addresses and broadcast/multicast traffic. On Linux, BSD, and OS X, with libpcap 1.0.0 or later, Wireshark 1.4 and later can also put wireless network interface controllers into monitor mode. History[edit] In the late 1990s, Gerald Combs, a computer science graduate of the University of Missouri–Kansas City, was working for a small Internet service provider.

Why your company should have a Freaky Friday — Recurring Revenue by ChartMogul For me, those two Freaky Friday hours on a Friday morning are the point of the week that I most look forward to in the ChartMogul Marketing team. It’s a time when each of us has an enforced reason for stepping away from their laptop screen, to take a couple of hours and gain some perspective on the why, as well as the high-level ‘what’. I asked Annie, our Content Manager, for her input on what the session means for her: “For me it’s great to step outside of the Content Calendar, which otherwise rules activity and directs focus, and into a wide open space with room enough for the big picture. The core rules of Freaky Friday Have a topic. NO input is wrong. As Annie mentions, this doesn’t always come naturally: “Another great thing about Freaky Fridays is that you learn about your team, how people think, where their strength lies. NO screens. Force yourself to come up with stupid ideas. Pick one experiment. A word from Annie on this: Content Marketing’s 3 biggest myths Yes.
