Projects / Netdude


Netdude (the NETwork DUmp data Displayer and Editor) is a framework for inspection and manipulation of tcpdump tracefiles. It is separated into a GUI-based frontend and a backend library that performs the actual packet manipulation. Both the front- and backend can be extended using plugins, in order to add support for new protocols and to provide modular code to other developers.

        Release Notes: This release will not always re-initialize the hex editor contents, since this means the cursor location is lost after every key click.

        •  07 Jun 2007 10:05

          Release Notes: This release included several important new features and bugfixes. pcap-level information can be edited, including timestamps, wire size, and caplen of packets. The protocol a user last chose explicitly is now remembered correctly when switching to another packet. Rendering of nested, identical protocols now works correctly (for example, the IP header contained in an ICMP message was not shown). Large file support was added. A problem where editing the TCP ACK number caused the sequence number to be changed instead was fixed. A segfault in the cut and paste code was fixed.
