LAN sniffing and password recovery


When you are a support guy trying to figure out an unfamiliar LAN that the last guy didn't document, hyou need some sniffing tools to figure out what is going on:

Here are some from "What is the best LAN sniffer?": and they recommend:

* "Ettercap": is a network sniffer and there is a "windows binary": The install fails though looking for a DLL.
* "Cain and Abel": This is a network password recovery tool that you can downloadat "":
* "Ethereal": I've used this before, it is a packet sniffer
