I'm working on an application that will be hosted internally to my company's intranet. I want to see if the text username and password is being sent in plain text. Are there any free network sniffers out there that I can test this with?

I know that one way around this is using SSL, but for right now, we don't have that option.

Thanks

Ethereal is an excellent sniffer and it reconstructs the tcp steam so you see exactly what happened in the http request.

You will need to install winpcap, but i think its in the download section of ethereal
