Editors' review

This network traffic-information tool performs well, but despite its ease of use it's designed for the experienced user only. SwitchSniffer's multipane, multitab interface resembles common FTP applications with an item browser to the left side, result window to the right, and numerous pulldown menus and sub-windows. The program's online manual is no longer available. This may be due to numerous program upgrades and a switch from shareware to freeware and back to shareware for this tool.

Starting SwitchSniffer is as simple as pressing the Scan button. The app scans your network quickly and thoroughly to discover local machines, remote IP addresses, and services accessed. The display is easily toggled to show local host, remote host, or session details. Numerous results are set as links to display additional information with just a click.

Expert users can easily set advanced features. The utility readily spoofs ARP tables, manages hosts using MAC addresses, and sets up special routing of inbound and outbound packets. While SwitchSniffer monitors all packets on the network, it requires another sniffer app to capture IDs and passwords.

The demo limits many activities to 30-minute sessions. SwitchSniffer is obviously designed as a tool for experts, but they'll find it easy to use, responsive, flexible, and feature-packed.
