An Environment for ?Sniffing? DCE-RPC Traffic
The ability to watch the network traffic generated by client and server applications can greatly assist in both understanding how a client/server application functions, as well as identifying problem areas. At the Center for Information Technology Integration (CITI), we use the Open Software Foundation?s Distributed Computing Environment (OSF/DCE). To examine network traffic in this client/server environment, we developed two tools: one based on the Network General Sniffer, and one based on the IBM RS 6000 AIX operating system.
