Hi, Sun-Managers.

Many thanks to the following nice persons:

Daniel Barrella
David Evans
Pete Fritchman
Blaine Owens
Craig Raskin
Rob Meyer

Especially David, who helped me to get to the solution,
and others who are coming.

The solutions are:

1. snoop
snoop -o /tmp/snoop.out tcp port 443
and then
snoop -i /tmp/snoop.out
to interpret the file.

This is what I use.

2. ntop
I did not try this one because it only comes with Solaris 7 and up and we
are running Solaris 2.6. But, after I read the manual, I have the gut
feeling that this should work if I can run it on 2.6.

3. rmon
I did not try this one because I already use snoop. But, thanks anyway.
