Packets are decoded down to the lowest layer with full analysis of the most widespread protocols. Full access to raw data is also provided in real time. CommView is a helpful tool for LAN administrators, security professionals, network programmers, or anyone who wants to have a full picture of the traffic going through one's PC or LAN segment.
