       etherape - graphical network traffic browser

       etherape	 [  -m	operating  mode	 ] [ -i interface ] [ -f filter ] [ -r
       inputfile ] [ -n ] [ -d ] [ -F ] [ -N color ] [ -L color ] [ -T color ]
       -z ]

       etherape	 is  a	network	 traffic browser. It displays network activity
       graphically. It uses GNOME libraries as its user interface,  and	 libp‐
       cap, a packet capture and filtering library.

       These options can be supplied to the command:

       -m, --mode <ethernet|fddi|ip|tcp>
	      set  mode	 of  operation	(default  is  lowest level for current

       -i, --interface <interface name>
	      set interface to listen to

       -f, --filter <capture filter>
	      set capture filter

       -r, --infile <file name>
	      set input file

       -n, --numeric
	      don't convert addresses to names

       -d, --diagram-only
	      don't display any node text identification

       -F, --no-fade
	      do not fade old links

       -N, --node-color <color>
	      set the node color

       -L, --link-color <color>
	      set the link color

       -T, --text-color <color>
	      set the text color

       -z, --zero-delay
	      ignores timestamps when replaying a capture file.

       -?, --help
	      show a brief help message

       Etherape will use /etc/ethers if there is one. If not, it will  try  to
       reverse lookup the ip address.

       IMPORTANT!   It is particularly important when running in ethernet mode
       to have the ethernet address of your router in  /etc/ethers.   If  not,
       your  router  will  have	 as name whatever IP address it was forwarding
       traffic from when it was first heard.
