Windows 10 has a built-in network sniffer

Windows 10 has a built-in network sniffer. Microsoft quietly added a built-in network packet sniffer to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update and very few knows about it.  A packet sniffer or a network sniffer, is a program that monitors the network activity.

This can be used by network administrators to  diagnose networking issues, see what types of programs are being used on their network, or even listen in on network conversations that are being sent un-encrypted.

Linux users usually use WireShark or tcpdump.

This program has a description of "Monitor internal packet propagation and packet drop reports", which indicates it is designed for diagnosing network problems.

Similar to the Windows 'netsh trace' command, it can be used to perform full packet inspection of data being sent over the computer.

How to use:

pktmon filter help

How to use filters for each port:

pktmon filter add -p 20

Then use the pktmon filter list command to see the packet filters you created:

pktmon filter list
