Angry IP Scanner. Despite being deceptively simple Angry IP Scanner does exactly what one would.

  1. Packet Peeper is a free network protocol analyzer (or ‘packet sniffer’) for Mac OS X. Its features include: TCP stream reassembly; Privilege separation; Simultaneous capture sessions; Filters, which may be defined at any time.
  2. Launched by sniffing a network for MAC addresses of clients who are actively associated with a switch port and re-using one of those addresses. By listening to the traffic on the network, a malicious user can intercept and use a legit user's MAC address to receive all the traffic destined for that user.
