Ethereal -> WireShark


Recommended Posts

The Ethereal network protocol analyzer has changed its name to Wireshark.

The name might be new, but the software is the same. Wireshark's powerful features make it the tool of choice for network troubleshooting, protocol development, and education worldwide.

Wireshark was written by networking experts around the world, and is an example of the power of open source. It runs on Windows, Linux, UNIX, and other platforms.

I'm sure the author would have liked to have kept the name Ethereal as well but when the company says they own the name it was probably much easier for him to just start off with a different name rather than start a legal battle.
