Data reassembly with Ethereal
This is a article that would show how to reassemble a packet using Ethereal.There are a few things youâ€™ll need in place to begin.The first, is a packetsniffer, Ethereal. Why Ethereal? Itâ€™s free. Itâ€™s cross-platform. It doesnâ€™t require a server OS. And it has one key feature that makes the process easier.Along with Ethereal, youâ€™ll need a text editor â€“ and those that ship with a Windows OS wontâ€™ work: notepad,Word, wordpad â€“ none of those will suffice, because even notepad modifies the data just enough to corrupt what weâ€™re trying to accomplish. Iâ€™m going to recommend a tool that works for me: Textpad. So, with a packet sniffer, and Textpad, weâ€™ll be good to go.
