Currently the PSniff supports the following protocols. ( Watch out for this list in future )
This list has been purposely made short, to focus on other features.
Support for some important protocols like ARP, BGP, RIP, NetBIOS along with others is planned. Also spoofing / packet shaping using Libnet is in the pipeline.
