"STOP button still doesn't work; looks like new..."

As was suggested, I deleted the prefs and sniffer in application support. I redownloaded the product and see it was last modified in October 2006! but regardless, the stop button still doesn't work for me.

"Stop button problems can be fixed."

June 14, 2005  |  By glowingcactus

 |  Version: Ethernal 1.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I too had stop button problems. I think it happens if you have used the earlier version and upgraded. The cure is to quit Ethernal and find the preferences file
edu.usfca.jean.bovet.Ethernal.plist from
~/Library/Preferences/
and maybe the "Ethernal" Folder in "~/Library/Application Support/"

After deleting those and relaunch it works for me.

Sometimes the Search function misreports some simple searches on captured packets (for example 'xy') in that a packet is found displayed that does not in fact contain the string xy but deleting that search phrase then typing it in again finds no packets with that string.

Something useful to have would be to have a way to additionally resolve some addresses to my own local table of host names or colours which can be loaded on future captures, maybe displayed as a separate column.

However this is Application shows lots of promise. Keep up the good work.

"Works quite well"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Seems to do the job well, but as already noted here, the Stop button doesn't work. Also, it would be useful to have an option to see the source and destination addresses in other formats. MAC addresses aren't particularly user friendly. Would it be possible to see IP addresses and ports as an option?

Other than that, a nice clean tool. I particularly like the search feature.
