Useful tool

Wireshark -- tagline "sniffing the glue that holds the Internet together -- is a network sniffer that uses tcpdump format capture files.  It runs on windows and OSX.  Very useful, with fairly versatile filtering available.  What I particularly like, though, is the ability to follow and display a given TCP session.  It's great for tracking a given web session or something like that.
