Question No: 20 ( Marks: 5 )
Which type of information is obtained from network sniffer and in which mode
Network sniffer operates?

Solution:
A network analyzer also called network monitor or a network sniffer is used to examine
the performance of or debug a network. It can report statistics such as capacity utilization,
distribution of frame size, collision rate or token circulation time

Most installations still use DIX Ethernet encoding in which there is no LLC/SNAP
header in the frame. A network analyzer can tell from the values in the type field (small
values are lengths, which mean an LLC/SNAP header is located in the first octets of the
data area; large values are types, which mean no LLC/SNAP header is included).

The operation of network analyzer is a computer with a network interface that receives
all frames, which is called promiscuous mode. So many desktop computers have
interface that can be configured for promiscuous mode. When combined with software
computer can examine any frame on LAN. In this way the communication across LAN is
guaranteed to be private. Computer receives and displays frames on the LAN.
Network analyzer can be configured to filter and process frames. It can count frames of
specific type of size. It displays only frames from or to specific computers.

Thick Ethernet, Thin Ethernet and Twisted pair Ethernet.

( Marks: 10 )

Solution:-

Thick Ethernet:
Thick Ethernet, officially known as 10 Base-5, is the oldest form of Ethernet.
One form of cabling supported by Ethernet is low-loss 50 Ohm coaxial cable as shown in
the figure below. This type of cable is 0.5" diameter (usually supplied with a yellow outer
PVC coating) and rather inflexible. It has become known in the communications industry
as "Thick Ethernet". The official name for this cable is 10 Baseband5 (10B5), indicating
that it is specified for baseband communications at 10 Mbps over distances up to 500m.

Thin Ethernet:

Thin Ethernet, officially called 10 Base-2, is a less expensive version of 10 Base-5 (Thick
Ethernet) technologies. It uses a lighter and thinner coaxial cable and dispenses with the
external transceivers used with 10 Base-5.

10 Base-2 uses an RG-58A/U coaxial cable and is wired in a bus topology. Each device
on the network is connected to the bus through a BNC "T" adapter, and each end of the
bus must have a 50 Ohm terminator attached. Each node on the bus must be a minimum
of 0.5 meters (1.5 feet) apart, and the overall length of the bus must be less than 185
meters (606 feet).

Twisted Pair Ethernet:

Twisted Pair Ethernet (10baseT), sometime also called "UTP" from "Unshielded Twisted
Pair", is based on using a cable similar to phone-wiring. The cable is connected via RJ-45
connectors to the network card installed in the PC.
