One of the complaints I've heard about this book is that it doesn't provide you with information on what different fields within a packet mean. This book is more like a very good user manual for version 0.

What seems to be a new version of the book with a new title is due out in June of , so some of you might want to wait until it gets released if you want the most up to date version. I've been just a casual user of Ethereal for a couple years so I thought I'd learn a lot from this book. Surprisingly though, only chapters 5 "Filters" and 8 "Real World Packet Captures" were helpful to me.

Everything else was either stuff I could easily figure out on my own, or things I don't use. Except for chapter 8 with the real-world examples and possibly chapter 9, "Developing Ethereal", this book is just a user manual and should be bought only with this in mind. It would be fun if they made another book that focuses on packet analyzation using Ethereal as the tool.

I'll wait. Evaluated as a user manual only, I'll give it 4 stars. Because it's merely a user manual, it should be less expensive. Then it would earn 5 stars.

If you are a network administrator, responsible for a network of any size, this book and the software it describes are "must have" tools in your toolkit. There are many ways a LAN can malfunction, and network malfunctions are especially likely after changes have been made to a LAN. Ethereal recently renamed "Wireshark" is a low cost, but very effective, tool for this purpose.

The book includes a CDROM which significantly enhances the value of the book because it includes all of the example "filters" found in the book, making them easier to use, in addition to providing copies of Ethereal for several operating systems. If you do not already have this book and know how to use Ethereal, you should buy this book soon.

Start by reading the book, but you really should learn to use Ethereal "hands on", on your LAN as soon as possible. You need to know what "normal" conditions look like on your LAN. When your LAN is down, you probably will not have time for much reading. This book provides far too much information to digest and understand at one time, especially while your LAN is down.

This is a book to read when you have some "slow" time because your network is OK. I gave this book 4 stars only because I think a new edition should be released soon. The current edition is now several years old, and with the name of the software recently changed to Wireshark, the book should be updated with the new name for this classic LAN troubleshooting tool. Provides an exhaustive view of Ethereal and how to use it. The only complaint I have, and perhaps unfairly so, is that it doesn't give enough context for the use of the product--although I recognize the book doesn't claim to be a primer on packet sniffing, a bit more information on the meaning of what it is you are seeing in each packet, would be helpful.

Regardless, I recommend this book highly. If I could give it 4. I've read numerous computer books, but this one is the worst, or next to worthless for someone trying to learn how to use Ethereal, now Wireshark. I don't know how the people who wrote this book can sleep at night - no kidding. It's a great book to lead the way. I've been using Ethereal for around five years, and this book still taught me a few new tricks. The key to the new material is Ethereal's development, from 0.

The book covers 0. The many improvements lend themselves to the sort of explanations found in "Ethereal. Although chs.

Because the entire book focuses on a single suite of tools, it has the space to take in-depth looks at normally ignored components like stream analysis graphs.

The book spends time explaining how to write filters with bitwise AND operations, and talks about 'matches' and 'contains' search functions. For programmers, the chapter on "developing Ethereal" gives clues on adding new protocol dissectors. This reminded me of a similar chapter in Syngress' book on Snort. If you want to really know how to use Ethereal, buy this book. Books on troubleshooting by Bardwell or Haugdahl have more insights to share than ch. It's worth a close read. Go to Amazon.
