How to view www traffic in details?



I enable Detail option for WWW traffic under Channel Selection for Sensor Packet Sniffer. The Help for this selection is "Detail: Count all traffic of this group and further divide it into different channels. The traffic will appear in several channels as shown in the Content column. "

I don't see Content column to view this traffic in details under Toplists, Top Connections. How do I view WWW traffic in details?

Thanks, Hien Doan EMA Inc

this setting only refers to the results of the sensors channels. Not the toplists. These stay the same.

best regards.

You will see the IPs/Hostnames in the Toplists of, for example, HTTP connections (on port 80), but not if that may be files or music, etc..
