Is there a way to capture all data that arrives at my ip address and a specific port?

by on June 4, 2013

Q: Hi, I would like to capture data arriving to my IPaddress:port and store them in a database. Can I do so with vb.net? If yes, should I use an object or write a code, and if I a code, is there any link on the web to help me out? Thanks a lot

    What you’re looking for is called “packet analyzer” software.

    Microsoft has one that is free to use, I suggest starting with that:

      Thanks Mark I will check them out, although I was interested in something I write myself. I hope it can be used with vb.net.
      Again thanks
