 Top Ten Ethereal Tips and Tricks

"One of the coolest features of Ethereal is its ability to reassemble all of the packets in a TCP conversation and display the ASCII in a very easy-to-read format. This makes it easy to pick out usernames and passwords from insecure protocols such as Telnet and FTP. The data can also be viewed in EBCDIC, hex dump, and C arrays. This data can then be saved or printed. A good use for this can be to reconstruct a web page. Just follow the stream of the HTTP session and save the output to a file. You should then be able to view the reconstructed HTML content offline, without the graphics of course, in a web browser. "
