Frame Display Window - Frame Analysis
View data at varying levels of granularity, from frame/message level to bit/byte level. Includes summary information for messages sent and received. Decoding of message into text. Protocol errors are identified with red frame numbers. Message is shown in binary, octal, hex and ASCII. Display filters include pre-set filters, node information filters and user defined complex filters. Capture filter limits the amount of Ethernet data captured. Multiple Frame Display Windows can be opened for simultaneous views of different sections of the captured data. Pane Summary - Frame Summary
View a one line high-level overview of each data frame/message. Select a protocol layer and the most significant fields are displayed in a concise form. Selecting a specific message frame causes text information to appear in the Frame Decode pane. To facilitate troubleshooting, all panes are adjustable in size and are synchronized. Selecting a message frame in the Summary pane automatically updates the other panes. Selecting an item in the Decode pane highlights the corresponding bits or bytes in the other panes. Protocol errors result in red frame numbers. Quick-filters create a new Summary display that only includes frames/messages that contain the protocol layer you have selected, making it easy to zoom in on your messaging/protocol problems. Frame Summary information can be exported into CSV format and loaded into a spreadsheet or other program to do intricate statistical analysis of protocol and network information. Frame Decode
View a comprehensive layered decode of each frame/packet through the Decode Pane Each field of a data frame is decoded layer-by-layer using a tree structure, with clear, concise descriptions. Selecting a field will automatically highlight the associated bytes in binary, hex, and ASCII. Selecting an item in the Decode pane will also highlight corresponding bits/bytes in other panes. Use the Summary pane to identify protocol or messaging problems and then drill-down using the Decode pane to solve the problem.  Frame Display - Frame Level Search
Examine and search data as it is being captured (or after it has been saved), through use of the Find Function Use the Find Function to quickly pinpoint problem areas in the captured data or to move to a specific frame. The frame level Find Function can 1) search the text of the decode for a specified string, 2) search for errors, and 3) limit the search to specific node. Data searches can also be performed at the byte level.

Frame Display - Has Easy to Use Capture and Display Filters to Enable You to View the Parameters You Need to See Fast

  • Tab Filters - Display only selected protocol.
  • Quick Display Filters - Preset Filters for displaying error messages, bookmarks, protocols and more.
  • Right Click Display Filters - Place cursor over the parameter you want to filter on and right click to setup the user defined filter for that parameter.
  • User Defined Display Filters - with User defined filter the user can design display filters for their specific requirements.

Frame Display - Capture and Display Filters
Use a Capture Filter to capture only the specific IP or MAC address information that you are interested in. Sift through large volumes of captured data and focus only on the problem areas. FTS's unique "drill down" capability enables the user to apply new filters while preserving previous views of the data. Captured data can be filtered on either an "include filtered data" or "exclude filtered data" basis. Filter parameters include protocol and data pattern; advanced mode enables the user to set up complex filters.

Frame Display - Frame Export
Outputs frame level information in text. Provides output that is formatted and human readable, suitable for importing into a spreadsheet or database, or useable by other programs for post-processing. Frame Display - Print Function
The Print Function allows the user to select the specific Frame Display areas to print.

Ethernet ComProbe®: Frontline's portable, non-intrusive, aggregator Ethernet Tap

  • The Ethernet ComProbe captures bi-directional Ethernet data.
  • The Ethernet ComProbe and the analysis PC to which it is connected are invisible to the network.
  • The tap does not interfere with auto negotiation/speed or duplex settings.
  • The "Permanent Network Link" feature guarantees permanent network connectivity.
  • There is no packet loss even if the USB power fails or the USB port is disconnected.
  • The tap is compatible with NetDecoder and Ethertest software protocol analyzers.
  • The tap is also compatible with the free, open-source Wireshark protocol analyzer
Hardware Settings Information

The Hardware Settings dialog allows you to select a specific Ethernet ComProbe device to sniff your Ethernet traffic.

You access the Hardware Settings dialog by selecting Hardware Settings from the Options menu on the NetDecoder Control Window. Select a device from the drop-down list. The NetDecoder analyzer automatically scans and identifies all the Ethernet ComProbe devices plugged into the PC. The IP address, subnet Mask and the Broadcast Address for that particular device are displayed. These are display only and cannot be edited.

Capture Filter Settings

The I/O Settings dialog allows you to configure the Ethernet ComProbe with special capture filters.

You access the I/O Settings dialog by selecting I/O Settings from the Options menu on the NetDecoder Control window. There are a number of settings you can select on this dialog that will affect how the frames are captured and displayed.

At the top of the dialog is one check box:

Remove CRC32 Bytes: When this option is enabled (checked), the Ethernet ComProbe removes the 4-bytes of CRC data from every Ethernet frame before passing it up to the software.

The dialog also allows users to define custom capture filters.

Enable Custom Capture Filter: Selecting this check box either enables or disables the capture filters.

This is an:

Include Filter: When you select this radio button, the Ethernet packets that match the filter settings are captured and displayed.

Exclude Filter: When you select this radio button, the Ethernet packets that match the filter settings are discarded. Only packets that do not match the settings are captured and displayed.

On the right side are six text entry boxes and their corresponding Check Boxes: If any of the Check boxes are unselected, then the corresponding text entry boxes are also disabled.

Ethernet MAC DST Address: Enter the Ethernet MAC Destination Address

Ethernet MAC SRC Address: Enter the Ethernet MAC Source Address

  • To set discrete MAC addresses, fill up all 6 bytes. For e.g.: 11:22:33:44:55:66.
  • To set a range of MAC addresses, use 'xx' in any required location. For e.g.: 11:xx:33:44:xx:xx.

Ethernet Type: Enter the 2-byte Ethernet Type value in hex. The value can range from 0x0000 to 0xFFFF.

IPv4 Protocol: Enter the one byte IPv4 protocol type. The value can range from 0x00 to 0xFF.

For a complete listing of the Ethernet Types and the IPv4 Protocol types, visit The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) website (www.iana.org). Here are some common types and their values:

IPv4 Source Address: Enter the Source IP Address

IPv4 Destination Address: Enter the Destination IP Address

  • To set discrete IP addresses, fill up all 4 bytes. For e.g.: 192.168.000.012.
  • To set a range of IP addresses, use 'xxx' in any required location. For e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx.
  • The address must be of the form 'AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD'. e.g. 192.168.112.135.
  • None of the individual numbers should be greater than 255.
  • For numbers less than 100, use preceding zeroes e.g. '027'. e.g. 192.168.001.028
  • Use 'xxx' to denote a range of address in of the 4 sub-fields. e.g. 192.168.xxx.xxx.

After selecting/entering values, it's very important that you understand what the buttons at the bottom of the dialog do when you select them.

Reset to Defaults: When you select Reset to Defaults all options are disabled.

Send Configuration to Device: After setting all the options in the dialog, you must click on ‘Send Configuration to Device’ before ‘OK’ to transfer the settings to the Ethernet ComProbe.

OK: There are two things to consider with the OK button.

  • If you click OK before you select Send Configuration to Device, the dialog will close and the settings will be saved, but they will not be transferred to the ComProbe. The settings will, however, be there if you open the dialog again.
  • If you select OK after you select Send Configuration to Device, the dialog will close, the settings will be saved and transferred to the ComProbe.

Selecting Cancel overrides all the selections and returns the user to the Control Window.
