Network Analyzer Detects IM Activity

September 08, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Colasoft has released Capsa 6.5, a Windows packet and protocol analyzer that makes it easy to locate and troubleshoot network problems. Capsa performs network analysis, packet sniffing, packet decoding, network monitoring, and protocol analysis. The latest version lets you directly monitor real-time activities and message details for the four most popular instant messengers: MSN, AIM, ICQ, and Yahoo Messenger. In addition, version 6.5 includes a new User Wizard that makes it simple to test selected adapters, ensuring that the software was correctly installed and deployed.

Capsa monitors traffic transmitted over a local host and a local network. It performs real-time packet capture and accurate data analysis. By giving you insights into all of your network's operations, Capsa makes it easy to isolate and solve network problems.

Capsa is designed to be used by both IT professionals and novice users. Problems are clearly identified, and solutions are suggested in understandable terms. The program includes tables and graphs, as well as intuitive statistics and reports. Capsa has the tools that you would expect to find in a high-end protocol analyzer, including tools to create and replay packets, and ping and scan IPs and MACs across the LAN.

Whether you're a network administrator who needs to identify, diagnose, and solve network problems quickly, an IT professional who wants to monitor user activities on the network, a security manager who needs to ensure that the corporation's communications assets are safe, or a consultant who has to quickly solve network problems for clients, Capsa has the tools that you need.

Capsa 6.5 runs under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista, and costs $299(US) for a single-user license of the Professional Edition. The Enterprise Edition, with prices beginning at $499(US), includes support for loop-back adapters, customizable network profiles, a summary statistics snapshot, and other enhanced features. You can download a trial version of Capsa from the company's web site:
