  1. Run Wireshark (you'll find it under the Internet menu) in unprivileged mode.

  2. Open this packet file: /home/kelliher/packetTrace.

  3. You're to hand in your answers to the four questions on the last page of the lab, as well as answers to these questions:
    1. An email message was sent during the packet recording session. What was the body of the email message?

    2. From question 1 on the main lab handout, do a bit of research on two of the protocols you listed that are unfamiliar to you. Write a couple sentences describing the protocols.

    3. An HTTP client made a GET request on the object /spancommunity. What was the server response?
