This group is not part of the GNU Project.

This project is based on free software movement.

EtherDogs is a simple packet sniffer for Ethernet networks with support for multiple protocols, they are: IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, IGMP.
It was programmed by me in ANSI C language and uses Raw Sockets BSD native GNU/Linux OS thus only depends on libpcap.
EtherDogs is designed to run on terminal in text mode on GNU/Linux OS.
It has been tested on GNU/Linux Slackaware, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, BackTrack and both processors x86 or x86_64, however I use as OS development for the GNU/Linux Slackware 14.0 x86, then any problem with other distros, please send email to  me correct the problem.
Usage: after compiling, installing and running the software binary file <etherdogs> open sockets and starts to capture the active network interface all traffic flowing in it and save all these packages with their details and datagrams in a log file generated for it in the project folder called dogslog.txt for later analysis of the same and so you can see what is happening on the network itself.

This being separately developed a graphical interface for gtk+ and libglade which will be called etherdogs-gui.

however it will always be based and updated as a front end fully mirrored in etherdogs text mode that is our base as a sniffer should work.

The etherdogs-gui has two more dependencies:

1) libglade-2.0
2) gtk + -2.0
