Viewing Event Details

The Event Detail section of the main window displays the reconstructed network event. To display the Event Detail section, click Events => Event Detail or right-click on a network event in the Event View section and select Event Detail from the pop-up menu. NetResident protocol plugins process the data and reconstruct the entire Web pages, e-mail messages, instant messenger chat sessions, etc.

 

event_details

 

Once a network event is selected in the Event View section of the main window, NetResident will query the database and reconstruct the event details, displaying the results in the Event Detail section. Besides displaying the event itself, the program shows useful service information about the event, such as HTTP headers for Web pages, e-mail headers for e-mail messages, FTP session log for FTP file transfer session.

 

The Event View section has a toolbar and menu that offer different options, depending on the type of the selected event.

 

event_details_dockable

 

You can drag the Event View section and place it anywhere in the program main window. To bring the panel back, drag it over the main window until it attaches itself to a side of the main window. If you would like to disable the automatic docking, right-click the window header and uncheck the Dockable box.

 

The Event Detail section has a menu with the following items (please note that not all items are available for all types of the events):

 

View Headers – displays e-mail message or Web page headers received along with the message or Web page.

Copy URL to the clipboard – copies the URL of the currently viewed Web page to the buffer.

Filter Settings – allows you to filter the elements of Web pages and the types of Web pages to be displayed in the Event Detail section based on the contents of the Web page, its size, and address.

Interface Settings – allows you to configure the font settings for the displayed event.

Copy – copies the selected data to the clipboard.

Select All – selects all data related to the network event.

Show Login/Password – displays login and password used for the POP3 session (for incoming e-mail messages only).

 

In addition to the general options mentioned above, each NetResident plugin offers plugin-specific options (depending on the network event type) that you can see this in this menu. For instance, the Show Login/Password option displays the login and password used for mail sessions (for incoming e-mail messages only); the View Headers option displays HTTP Session headers (for Web pages only), etc.
