IP Traffic Spy is an open source software which displays the incoming and outgoing data from your wireless and wired network connection to help you identify traffic coming from malicious sources and to see if your outgoing information is encrypted. You can also add IPs to monitor for security reasons. For example, you might be interested in checking incoming information from an IP for security reasons.
Once IP Traffic Spy is launched, it begins displaying your incoming and outgoing traffic information. It separates the data in columns which display Date, Time, S-IP, D-IP, S-Port, D-Port, Text and data packet size. The raw TCP/IP packets are processed by your network adapter and displayed in a user friendly manner.
To add filters, head over to Options drop down menu and include filter keys. You can specify source IPs and ports, as well as destination IPs and ports to create a filter list. This will help you to include or exclude data packets, and make it easier to monitor specific connections.
