While I"m very happy that so many security and network apps are available for OBSD, I'm struggling to find a packet sniffer such as the ubiqutous tcpdump.
I believe that wireshark (ethereal) has been dropped from OBSD because of security concerns but surely there must be some way of knowing what's on the wire? What do other people use?
There's a package called bsd-airtools. That may have what you're talking about.
Thanks Lance, I've installed bsd-airtools but all I can find is layer 2 (kismet style) functionality. Tcpdump allows you to 'sniff the wire' at > layer 3. I've found trafshow to be useful but still I miss basic, popular opens source tools and it is very frustrating not to have them in what is otherwise a very well equipped distro. Who makes up the rules?
