Sample text

With this option all host addresses are printed as IP numbers, as shown in the two traces below. If you omit this option, tcpdump attempts to print addresses as names. Depending on your configuration, it usually does this by looking up the addresses in the DNS (the Domain Name System that converts between hostnames and IP numeric addresses; see Chapter 7). If you don’t have a working DNS setup, tcpdump will hang without printing anything for about a minute and a half, or even more, while it tries to do the lookups.

4a) passes the packet to my machine’s hardware to transmit, and the hardware does the rest. , and the fields are not in the order shown. We don’t need that level of detail, but if you want to explore in depth, see Stevens. Ethernet is called a “best effort” system, which means it tries to deliver the data but doesn’t guarantee it, and if the packet gets lost – because of noise on the wire, or because the network is too busy, or someone pulls out a wire – it doesn’t tell you. ) It’s important to note that what Ethernet sends is an Ethernet packet, which can carry any type of data as payload (which is, of course, why you can run lots of different network systems, not just TCP/IP, on an Ethernet).

The sniffer we use is tcpdump. It’s good, easy to use, and free, and it’s available for Windows and Linux. Let’s look at an example. We’ll use the ping program, which sends a special packet from your machine to another – Bob, say. If Bob is alive, it sends back a reply, letting you know that he’s up and running. 1 shows one of our machines, Alice, pinging another, Bob, on the same local network. 2 is the tcpdump trace of this interaction with tcpdump, running on a third machine, Carol. Don’t worry about the detail here – we’ll cover every aspect of all this later on.
