A virtual machine can be downloaded that contains useful tools to do experiment with flows of information units and protocols

  • Wireshark (packet capture)
  • HTTP web server (installed locally)
  • SMTP and POP Mail Server (installed locally)

A series of files (Wireshark traces) are made also available here that represent the exchange of information units (frames, packets, segments, messages) of different protocols through a network interface and which can be analyzed by means of the software Wireshark. The associated file (Wireshark activities) suggests how to articulate the experimentation activity after a general introduction to the Wireshark tool (Wireshark introduction).
