As you might already know, Network Monitor 3.2 has been released and represents a major upgrade and improvement in Microsoft's free network monitoring and packet sniffing tool. If you haven't had a chance to check out the new Network Monitor, you can go to http://blogs.technet.com/netmon/archive/2008/09/17/network-monitor-3-2-has-arrived.aspx to get more information and links to download.
As good as NetMon 3.2 is, it can always be made better. That's the goal of the new Network Monitor Wizard. Using the new Network Monitor Wizard, you can easily schedule captures that will start and stop based on specific parameters you set in the wizard. You can also control what protocols and what source and destination host communications are captured in the scheduled capture.
