[prMac.com] Code by Kevin has released PacketStream 2.2 for Mac OS X. PacketStream provides point-and-click activation of the Mac's built-in network monitoring program. By clicking a few buttons, you can monitor data as it streams over your network - especially useful for checking web traffic, network bottlenecks, or even suspicious network activity. All network data is displayed in the application itself, and you can save the data to a file for further analysis later.
PacketStream provides a user-friendly way to configure and use the Mac's network monitoring tools. It is easier than typing in cryptic commands in Terminal. As a native Aqua application, it is more intuitive to use than complex, hard-to-install, Unix-based GUI programs. And it is simpler than more expensive "swiss army knife" network programs, which are overkill for most users.
Version 2.2 includes the following improvements:
* UI improvements: Standard Mac toolbar, standard Mac search field, two-pane layout. More intuitive and simple to use.
* Live resizing of window view.
* Expanded documentation: now includes an introduction to tcpdump and network analysis as well as documentation on PacketStream.
* Added "Contact Code by Kevin" function to improve user support.
* Software update now lists changes.
PacketStream is shareware; licenses are available for $20 and a 30-day demo is available. Version 2.2 is a free upgrade for users with a valid serial number. PacketStream is a universal binary and requires Mac OS X 10.4. For more information, visit http://www.codebykevin.com/packetstream.html.
