    Hi,
     I thought I should mention this ,I had used Ethreal on XP with SP2 beta a few weeks back and it was working fine for me .The only time it crashed was when I had large capture files, which I had captured using netmon (half a gig) filtered,in Ethereal.
    regards
    Anish

    Hi !

    Yep, a friend of mine had nearly the same trouble, but the difference was that nothing was displayed on the screen. Seems WinPCap's fault, not Ethereal's one (as winpcap is the driver that manages the NIC and puts it in promiscuous mode...)

    The trouble was simple: it was the Windows' SP2RC2 fault...does not seem to validate very used tools as Snort or Ethereal. But this is a current thread on this list ...

    Hope this helps... :)

    Objet : Ethereal Crashing on WinXP

    Hi All,

    Recently I had reformatted my system and install the XP again. Earlier ethereal was running fine on my machine with XP.

    But now when I go for capturing the packet though ethereal it crashes after I stop capturing. When I tried with option 'update list of packets in real-time', it crashed after capturing 20-25 packets and capture info window still showing that ethereal is capturing the packets. All the configuration setting is default.

    I am totally confused and lost what might be the problem. Does anyone of you also encountered the same problem.

    I am using ethereal ver 0.10.6 and WinPcap ver 3.0

     

    Best Regards

    Vijay Mishra
