In addition to capturing live
network data, NetResident allows you to import network data from
capture files generated by a number of network analyzers and
monitors. The current version can import files in the CommView®,
CommView® for WiFi, Network Instruments Observer®, Network General
Sniffer® for DOS/Windows, Microsoft® NetMon, WildPackets EtherPeek™
and AiroPeek™, Wireshark/Tcpdump, and Wireshark/pcapng formats. Two
import modes are available.
Click Import in Events => View => Events and
select a capture file to import. The NetResident service will
process the file contents, applying your capture filter(s). Once
the file has been processed, new events will show up in the event
list of the NetResident console.
Automatic import allows you to
specify a folder that will be “watched” by NetResident for any
changes. As soon a new file is added to that folder, it will be
immediately imported and new events will show up in the event list
of the NetResident console.
configure this functionality, locate the Connections => Service => Auto
Import group on the tool bar and select the Folder as shown below. Check the
Enabled box and then click
Save to apply the settings.
Check the Use Current Date
box, if you want to replace the data stamps in the file being
imported by the current system date.
