Forum Thread: Network Sniffing?

Just a question as I am new enough to kali,

I know arpspoofing can be used for diffrent reasons but let's just say you were wanting to do packet sniffing, which would be better or quicker?

Arpspoof OR Airodump-ng?

Simply put, these tools are NOT interchangeable. Arp spoofing is a form of MITM, which is great if you want to modify the contents of packets. Packet sniffing is entirely passive, and is great if you want to silently observe the network. From a stealth perspective, packet sniffing is the way to go.
