Package description for 'ngrep'

a grep for network traffic

 ngrep strives to provide most of GNU grep's common features, applying 
 them to the network layer. ngrep is a pcap-aware tool that will allow 
 you to specify extended regular or hexadecimal expressions to match 
 against data payloads of packets. It currently recognizes TCP, UDP and 
 ICMP across Ethernet, PPP, SLIP, FDDI, Token Ring and null interfaces, 
 and understands bpf filter logic in the same fashion as more common 
 packet sniffing tools, such as tcpdump and snoop.
