Ross Bagurdes, Madison College

Ross Bagurdes has had a diverse career. Ross was educated as a Structural Engineer, however quickly gave up designing beams in favor of playing and working with IT equipment. Although Ross has been using computers since the mid 1980’s, his official career in Info Tech did not begin until 1997, at Nicor Gas in Illinois, supporting a paperless initiative for maintenance crews. Since then, Ross has spent his years teaching and managing data networks. He spent 7 years supporting and managing the UW Hospitals and Clinics network, server, and security infrastructure, and has now returned to teaching full time at Madison College, in Madison, WI.
Abstract: Capturing and analyzing network traffic is critical to understanding, analyzing, and troubleshooting data networks. Wireshark is the world leader in open source packet capture and analysis software. Wireshark is a community supported application, with an enormous install and support base. In this tutorial Ross will walk you through a brief history of Wireshark, as well as describing how Wireshark works, finishing with a demonstration of a live packet capture.
