tcpflow and Flamory

Flamory provides the following integration abilities:

  • Create and use window snapshots for tcpflow
  • Take and edit tcpflow screenshots
  • Automatically copy selected text from tcpflow and save it to Flamory history

Screenshot editing

Flamory helps you capture and store screenshots from tcpflow by pressing a single hotkey. It will be saved to a history, so you can continue doing your tasks without interruptions. Later, you can edit the screenshot: crop, resize, add labels and highlights. After that, you can paste the screenshot into any other document or e-mail message.

Here is how tcpflow snapshot can look like. Get Flamory and try this on your computer.

Application info

tcpflow, a TCP Flow Recorder, is a program that captures data transmitted as part of TCP connections (flows), and stores the data in a way that is convenient for protocol analysis or debugging. A program like 'tcpdump' shows a summary of packets seen on the wire, but usually doesn't store the data that's actually being transmitted. In contrast, tcpflow reconstructs the actual data streams and stores each flow in a separate file for later analysis.

tcpflow understands sequence numbers and will correctly reconstruct data streams regardless of retransmissions or out-of-order delivery. However, it currently does not understand IP fragments; flows containing IP fragments will not be recorded properly.

tcpflow is based on the LBL Packet Capture Library (available from LBL) and therefore supports the same rich filtering expressions that programs like 'tcpdump' support. It should compile under most popular versions of UNIX; see the INSTALL file for details.

Integration level may vary depending on the application version and other factors. Make sure that user are using recent version of tcpflow. Please contact us if you have different integration experience.
