dSniff Control is a front end for the open source command line utility suite. dSniff allows network administrators to test their networks for the most common sniffing and spoofing techniques. dSniff Control includes a basic graphical interface for using dsniff, mailsnarf, msgsnarf, urlsnarf, arpspoof, and tcpdump.

dSniff Control tests your networks for common sniffing/spoofing techniques.

This software is intended for legal use only. I do not condone or take any responsibility for the use of this software outside of a network which you are not authorized to access and monitor.

Here are some key features of "dSniff Control":
Allows you to save the output directly from any of the supported dsniff applications to a text file for later review.
Autoclear allows you to clear output automatically after the specified number of characters to save memory.
Ride Along feature allows you to monitor the websites visited on your network in the built in web browser in real time.
tcpdump front end allows you to easily capture packets without entering a terminal.
Easily select any installed network interface.
Multiple windows allow for multiple sessions of the same function on different network interfaces.
