One of our goals for this week is to install and run a packet capture utility, such as Wireshark. If you are successful with this task, run the packet capture while you do a familiar online task (reading online news, browsing at Amazon.com, searching at Google, etc.).
Create a new topic and report any observations you make about the sort of information you see in the output of the packet stream. Save your capture and post the.
pcap file with your conference response. Note any network characteristics that might affect what you see (e.g. are you looking at wired or wireless traffic? With or without encryption? Over what type of Internet connection?).
After you comment on your own capture, take a look at the packet capture of at least one of your classmates and add an observation about what you see in their network traffic.
