Packet Capture

This feature provides a simple mechanism for capturing packet details on a specific interface at a given moment in time. Access this option from the Dashboard using the Action > System and Monitoring menu. In the 'Packet Captures' tab a list of all previous captures will be shown. These can be downloaded, viewed on screen or deleted.

 

The example above shows a list of previously generated packet captures.

To use the feature, select 'New Packet Capture' button on the top right of the screen. In the new window, select the interface you want to capture from, the duration of the capture and the maximum size of the capture file. Click on 'Start Packet Capture'.

The example below shows the on-screen output that is generated during a packet capture.
