Wireshark ('Ethereal' originally) is the one of the most popular tools used by Network administrators to analyze the packets observed by their systems. It is totally free and open-source protocol analyzer software written in Qt that uses pcap to capture packets over ethernet interfaces. Wireshark is as good as the Linux command tcpdump but it comes with a graphical front-end along with some sorting and filtering choices. This article will guide you to install Wireshark 1.10.3 in your Ubuntu or Linux Mint Systems.
