EtherApe is a GNOME/pcap-based etherman, interman, and "tcpman" clone. It displays network activity graphically. Active hosts are shown as circles of varying size, and traffic among them is shown as lines of varying width. It supports Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring, ISDN, PPP, WLAN, and SLIP transports. It knows about VLANs, IP, IPv6, TCP, UDP, FTP, and a number of other protocols. Additional statistics windows will let you concentrate on protocols or nodes.

Release Notes: This release adds a new central node mode (a single node can be placed on the display center, useful for routers and proxies), re-enables fullscreen mode, adds a German translation, and updates the Spanish translation.
Release Notes: A critical bug triggered by RPC traffic that could be exploited to make EtherApe crash just by sending a suitable packet was fixed. No packet data is involved other than the IP addresses, so privilege escalation should not happen.
Release Notes: EtherApe gains several traffic statistics and can now export them. OS X compatibility was improved. Italian and Swedish translations have been added.
Release Notes: IPv6 support was added. EtherApe now computes average packet size to better estimate network usage. A new option, --min-delay, allows slow-motion replay of a capture file. Note that the non-threaded name resolver is deprecated and will be removed in the next release.
Release Notes: This release adds support for 802.11 WLAN, LLC-SNAP, Radiotap and PPI encapsulation, and 802.1Q VLAN tagging. VLAN tags are decoded but ignored, showing all traffic as being in a normal LAN. EtherApe now uses gnome-doc-utils. Note that this release will be the last mirrored on the CVS repository, which will be shut down on March 2010.
