Posted by jpluimers on 2021/01/25

Back in 2019, there were 56 commands and scripts covered. I wonder how many there are now.

An ongoing list of Linux Networking Commands and Scripts. These commands and scripts can be used to configure or troubleshoot your Linux network.

Source: [WayBack55 Linux Networking commands and scripts

List back then (which goes beyond just built-in commands: many commands from optional packages are here as well):

  1. arpwatch – Ethernet Activity Monitor.
  2. bmon – bandwidth monitor and rate estimator.
  3. bwm-ng – live network bandwidth monitor.
  4. curl – transferring data with URLs. (or try httpie)
  5. darkstat – captures network traffic, usage statistics.
  6. dhclient – Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Client

  12. hping – TCP/IP packet assembler/analyzer.
  13. ibmonitor – shows bandwidth and total data transferred.
  14. ifstat –  report network interfaces bandwidth.
  15. iftop – display bandwidth usage.
  16. ip (PDF file) – a command with more features that ifconfig (net-tools).
  17. iperf3 – network bandwidth measurement tool. (above screenshot Stacklinux VPS)
  18. iproute2 – collection of utilities for controlling TCP/IP.
  19. iptables – take control of network traffic.
  20. IPTraf – An IP Network Monitor.
  21. iputils – set of small useful utilities for Linux networking.
  22. jwhois (whois) – client for the whois service.
  23. “lsof -i” – reveal information about your network sockets.
  24. mtr – network diagnostic tool.
  25. net-tools – utilities include: arp, hostname, ifconfig, netstat, rarp, route, plipconfig, slattach, mii-tool, iptunnel and ipmaddr.

Sniffers, Packet Capture – PFSenseDocs – cool, as it uses tcpdump/Wireshark format!

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/13

I hadn’t done a lot with pfSense in the past, which I regret a bit since I discovered this really cool feature: Sniffers, Packet Capture – PFSenseDocs.

The coolness isn’t so much that you can capture packets, but that it’s compatible with tcpdump and Wireshark (which has become available natively for Mac like 2 years ago).

Which means that you can download captures and open them in Wireshark.

So it’s as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. Set-up the capture on your router https://a.b.c.d/diag_packet_capture.php and start it
  2. Stop the capture and download the file
  3. Open the file in Wireshark or convert it to text using tshark
