       etterlog - Log analyzer for ettercap log files


       etterlog [OPTIONS] FILE


       Etterlog  is  the  log  analyzer  for  logfiles  created  by  ettercap. It can handle both
       compressed (created with -Lc) or uncompressed logfiles. With this tool you can  manipulate
       binary  files  as you like and you can print data in different ways all the times you want
       (in contrast with the previous logging system which was used to dump in  a  single  static
       You will be able to dump traffic from only one connection of your choice, from only one or
       more hosts, print data in hex, ascii, binary etc...

       TIP: All non-useful messages are printed to stderr,  so  you  can  save  the  output  from
       etterlog with the following command:

       etterlog [options] logfile > outfile

              Thus you can dump for example a binary file from an ftp connection if you print the
              data in binary mode, without headers and selecting  only  the  ftp  server  as  the
              source of the communication.


       -a, --analyze
              Analyze a log file and display some interesting statistics.

       -c, --connections
              Parse  the  log  file and print a table of unique connections (port to port).  This
              option can be used only on LOG_PACKET logfiles. On LOG_INFO logfiles it is useless.

              TIP: you can search for a particular host by using the following command:

              etterlog -c logfile.ecp | grep

       -f, --filter <TARGET>
              Print only packets coming from or going to TARGET. The TARGET specification is  the
              same as in ettercap.
              TARGET  is  in  the form MAC/IPs/PORTs. With IPv6 support enabled, TARGET is in the
              form MAC/IPs/IPv6/PORTs. Omitting one or more of its parts will  be  equivalent  to
              set  them to ANY. IPs and IPv6 will be treated as one part so that it's only set to
              ANY if both IPs and IPv6 is omitted. This concludes in a result  most  users  would

              If  the  log type is LOG_INFO the target is used to display hosts matching the mac,
              ip and having the specified port(s) open. For example the target //80 will  display
              only information about hosts with a running web server.

       -r, --reverse
              Reverse  the  matching  in  the TARGET selection. It means not(TARGET). All but the
              selected TARGET.

       -t, --proto <PROTO>
              Sniff only PROTO packets (default is TCP + UDP).  This option  is  only  useful  in
              "simple"  mode.  If  you  start  ettercap  in interactive mode both TCP and UDP are
              PROTO can be "tcp", "udp" or "all" for both.

       -F, --filcon <CONNECTION>
              Print packets belonging only to this CONNECTION.
              CONNECTION is in the form PROTO:SOURCE:DEST.  SOURCE  and  DEST  are  in  the  form


              etterlog -F TCP:

       -s, --only-source
              Display  only packets that are sent by the source of the selected CONNECTION.  This
              option makes sense only in conjunction with the -F option.

              TIP: if you want to save a file transferred in an HTTP or FTP connection,  you  can
              use the following command:

              etterlog -B -s -n -F TCP: logfile.ecp > example.tar.gz

       -d, --only-dest
              Same as --only-source but it filters on the destination host.

       -n, --no-headers
              Do not print the header of each packet. This option is useful if you want to save a
              file in binary format (-B option). Without the headers you can redirect the  output
              to a file and you will get the original stream.

              NOTE:  the  time  stamp  in  the  header  is  in the form: Thu Mar 27 23:03:31 2003
              [169396], the value in the square brackets is expressed in microseconds

       -m, --show-mac
              In the headers show also the mac addresses corresponding to the ip addresses.

       -k, --color
              If used in conjunction with -F it displays the source and dest  of  the  connection
              using  different colors. If used with a LOG_INFO file it prints LAN hosts in green,
              REMOTE hosts in blue and GATEWAYS in red.

       -l, --only-local
              Used displaying an INFO file, it displays information only about local hosts.

       -L, --only-remote
              Used displaying an INFO file, it displays information only about remote hosts.


       -e, --regex <REGEX>
              Display only packets matching the regex <REGEX>.
              If this option is used against a LOG_PACKET logfile, the regex is executed  on  the
              payload  of  the  packet. If the type is LOG_INFO, the regex is executed on all the
              fields of the host profile (OS, banners, service and ethernet adapter).
              NOTE: the regex is compiled with the REG_ICASE flag (case insensitive).

       -u, --user <USER>
              Display information about this user. The search is performed over all the user/pass
              couples collected across all hosts.

       -p, --passwords
              Print  only the collected account information for each host. This prevents the huge
              profile output. It can be used in conjunction with the  -u  option  to  filter  the
              users.  An  asterisk  '*'  used  in  front  of an account represents a failed login

       -i, --show-client
              Show the client ip address when displaying the collected users  and  passwords.  It
              may be useful when ACLs are in place.

       -I, --client <IP>
              Show  passwords  only  coming  from a specific <IP>. This is useful to view all the
              usernames and passwords of a client.


       -C, --concat
              Use this option to concatenate two (or more) files into one single  file.  This  is
              useful  if  you have collected ettercap log files from multiple sources and want to
              have an unified report. The output file must be specified with the  -o  option  and
              the input files are listed as normal arguments.

              etterlog -C -o outfile input1 input2 input3

       -o, --outfile <FILE>
              specifies the output file for a concatenation.


       -B, --binary
              Print  data  as  they are, in binary form. Useful to dump binary data to a file (as
              described above).

       -X, --hex
              Print the packets in hex format.


              the string  "HTTP/1.1 304 Not Modified"  becomes:

              0000: 4854 5450 2f31 2e31 2033 3034 204e 6f74  HTTP/1.1 304 Not
              0010: 204d 6f64 6966 6965 64                    Modified

       -A, --ascii
              Print only "printable" characters, the others are displayed as dots '.'

       -T, --text
              Print only the "printable" characters and skip the others.

       -E, --ebcdic
              Convert an EBCDIC text to ASCII.

       -H, --html
              Strip all html tags from the text. A tag is every string between '<' and '>'.


              <title>This is the title</title>, but the following <string> will not be displayed.

              This is the title, but the following will not be displayed.

       -U, --utf8 <encoding>
              Print the packets in UTF-8 format. The <encoding> parameter specifies the  encoding
              to  be  used  while  performing  the  conversion. Use the `iconv --list` command to
              obtain a list of all supported encodings.

       -Z, --zero
              Print always the void string. i.e. print only  header  information  and  no  packet
              content will be printed.

       -x, --xml
              Print  the  host  information  in xml form, so you can parse it with your favourite

              The DTD associated with the xml output is in share/etterlog.dtd


       -v, --version
              Print the version and exit.

       -h, --help
              Print the help screen with a short summary of the available options.


       Here are some examples of using etterlog.

       etterlog -k -l dump.eci

              Displays information about local hosts in different colors.

       etterlog -X dump.ecp

              Prints packets in HEX mode with full headers.

       etterlog -c dump.ecp

              Displays the list of connections logged in the file.

       etterlog -Akn -F TCP: dump.ecp

              Displays  the  IRC  traffic  made  by  in  ASCII  mode,  without  headers
              information and in colored mode.

       etterlog -H -t tcp -f //80 dump.ecp

              Dumps all HTTP traffic and strips html tags.

       etterlog -Z -r -f / dump.ecp

              Displays only the headers of all connections except ssh on host

       etterlog -A -e 'user' -f //110 dump.ecp

              Displays only POP packets containing the 'user' regexp (case insensitive).

       etterlog -u root dump.eci

              Displays information about all the accounts of the user 'root'.

       etterlog -e Apache dump.eci

              Displays information about all the hosts running 'Apache'.

       etterlog -e Linux dump.eci

              Displays information about all the hosts with the 'Linux' operating system.

       etterlog -t tcp -f //110 dump.eci

              Displays information about all the hosts with the tcp port 110 open.

       etterlog -t udp dump.eci

              Displays information about all the hosts with at least one UDP port open.

       etterlog -B -s -n -F TCP: logfile.ecp > example.tar.gz

              Dumps in binary form the data sent by over the data port of FTP. Since the
              headers are omitted, you will get the file as it was.
