Inspecting network traffic with tcpdump and Wireshark

In this experiment you will practice using tcpdump and Wireshark, two software applications for packet capture and packet analysis. Using these applications, we can capture raw network data as it arrives at or leaves any host in our experiments, save the raw network packets in a file, and analyze the packets in this file in order to gain insight into network protocols and their behavior.

To execute the experiment, you will follow the instructions at:
