Wireshark (old name is Ethereal) is a program that can run in many operating systems such as Windows, Linux, MacOS or Solaris and can analyze all the traffic going to network cards connected to computer. Analyze over 750 protocols Can capture packets and save them to a file.
Logical operators are available for all filtering.
Example: http & ip.src == 192.168.0.1
Management Frame: The frame for the connection between the network device and the client.
Control Frame: Controls the integrity of data traffic between the network device and the client.
Data Frame: The frame on which the original data is transferred.

|TCP lists the outgoing packets to the xx port.||tcp.port == xx|
|TCP lists packages with the Source xx port.||tcp.srcport == xx|
|TCP lists packages with a destination xx port.||tcp.dstport == xx|
|UDP lists the outgoing packets to the xx port.||udp.port == xx|
|UDP lists packets with a destination xx port.||udp.srcport == xx|

| To view only DHCP traffic.|
DHCP uses BOOTP as its transport protocol.
| udp.port == 68|
