Ignoring all the drawbacks of using a windows box for this, I have to know exactly what the wireshark instance is doing? Is someone really looking at the data? Is wireshark being used to dump out all traffic so that someone can go back and look at it later? Is someone watching it real time? -- Nigel Houghton Head Mentalist SF VRT && ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Register Now for Creativity and Technology (CaT), June 3rd, NYC.
