 Network Troubleshooting Tools

"As the name suggests, ngrep stands for "network grep." Like grep, ngrep searches for a string or regular expression but does so on the network layer. This can be particularly useful in a number of cases when you're trying to troubleshoot problems, watch for interactions between programs on the network level, or just if you're nosey. It's also a good idea to play around with ngrep a bit just to see what kind of information other people might be able to glean by sniffing packets coming from your system."
