Original question:

Dear SMs,

How can I block someone from snooping my network traffic of my

Currently they can view the interactive sessions between my system and
a remote one and gain valuable information.

Maybe there are some utilities to addon/replace tcp/ip?



* Use the secure shell;
(commercial), (original free version),
* Subnet the network (LAN) with all HOT machines in a small subnet.
 This will render the snoop useless for these machines.
* Install smart HUBS or switches in the LAN.
* Use kerberos.

Thanks to *
