packet sniffer

I am no whiz when it comes to reading packet traces, I am trying but I am
just not finding the issue. Is there someone here who can read a packet
trace & help me out here? (taken from a nw51svr using the pktscan.nlm on a
network with a 16port hub - yes, a hub...).

Thanks

Should really post this in the relevant support forum. I say that
because you mentioned netware. The problem here is that you can't have
a technical support conversation in here about it and others might
benefit from seeing the thread in it's proper place as well as be able
to chime in with suggestions.

Re: packet sniffer

its not netware specific support, that just so happened to be the machine i
had the sniffer loaded up on, i didnt have wireshark installed on any of the
client workstations in that remote location.

Re: packet sniffer

sadly, that probably does a better job than me at this point for network
packet sniffing

Ok, I thought since you mentioned netware, it would be client/server
connection issues. I've not really used the netware trace that often,
I'd guess however it's probably not as robust as wireshark. I'll take a
look.

Hehehe. That was my thought. I think the problem is the hub.

Re: packet sniffer

in a small 10 computer network with a couple network printers, i doubt it is
normal traffic causing the issue.

Re: packet sniffer

Been working on that. It is a remote office that I have never visited, & as
I have been going through the network this past week, I have been "finding"
additional 10mb hubs connected in places there is no need for. A couple of
the network printers were only used by one person, and one person only so I
had those removed from the network & just connected locally (simplification
hopefully). This would be a case where being there physically would be nice
for once....that will never happen though.
