Expert for viewing HTTP/TCP data as ASCII?

Jul 16, 2009 at 11:36 PM

I currently use Ethereal for debugging HTTP and SOAP webservice calls. Network Monitor looks like a much better protocol analyzer, and I love the ability to seperate out traffic from different processes, but it is very difficult to access the ASCII data and view a "conversation" covering multiple webservice calls. I couldn't find any option for "View as ASCII" built into Network Monitor, but I assume this could be added as a very simple Expert. I took a look at the SDK, but it is a bit over my head. Anyone else look at adding a simple expert like the "Follow Stream" that is offered in Etherreal (See screenshot link below). This would really help for use with HTTP and Web Services.

I don't know of anybody creating an expert at this time, however we have heard this request before.  The expert it self would be fairly simple to create.  We could certinaly supply some help if you or anybody else wanted to attempt to create one.
