Hello Amit.

Your tutorial for coding a simple packet sniffer has been removed from http://www.ncsu.edu/it/mirror/ldp/LDP/LGNET//128/saha.html

Is it maybe possible that you send it to me via this e-mail

Thank you in advance

Nikola Tanev,

Macedonia

Yes. That was a mistake on my part due to which it was removed.

As the mistake has been rectified, I don't see that there's any harm in mention what the original source was. I assume it was "Programming with pcap" http://www.tcpdump.org/pcap.htm
