I guess I should have mentioned that Wireshark is a new "fork" of 
Ethereal for name trademark reasons.  What's unusual in this case is 
that ALL of the Ethereal core development team has moved to Wireshark 
instead.  I don't know if anyone will actually be working on Ethereal in 
the future.

I have not looked into the matter deeply, but for all intents and 
purposes Wireshark == Ethereal and *I'm* considering Ethereal dead.

I'd forgotten about TDIMon and TCPView.  While SysInternals stuff is 
GREAT, I personally prefer free (beer&speech) software, thus the more 
full featured and GNU Ethereal/Wireshark.  But there are lots of 
possibilities.  Heck, Windows even has one built-in, or used to, but I 
forget the name.  Network Monitor?  Network Analyzer?  IIRC the built-in 
one didn't do promisc mode, which is probably not an issue here, but the 
version from SMS did.

Microsoft has single-handedly nullified Moore's Law.
Innate design flaws of Windows make a personal firewall, anti-virus
and anti-malware software mandatory. The resulting software arms race
has effectively flattened Moore's Law on hardware running Windows.
