By using a PS4/Xbox IP puller, IP sniffer and IP grabbers, we are able to monitor the network traffic, inspect any packet and collect statistical information regarding the network or an IP address.

A PS4/Xbox IP Puller work by examining streams of data packets that flow between computers on a network as well as between networked computers and the larger Internet. These packets are intended for and addressed to specific machines, but using a packet sniffer in “promiscuous mode” allows IT professionals, end users or malicious intruders to examine any packet, regardless of the destination target. It’s possible to configure sniffers in two ways. The first is “unfiltered,” meaning they will capture all packets possible and write them to a local hard drive for later examination. Next is “filtered” mode, meaning analyzers will only capture packets that contain specific data elements.

Packet sniffers can be used on both wired and wireless networks, their efficacy depends on how much they are able to “see” as a result of network security protocols. On a wired network, sniffers might have access to the packets of every connected machine or may be limited by the placement of network switches. On a wireless network, most sniffers can only scan one channel at a time, but the use of multiple wireless interfaces can expand this capability.

A PS4/Xbox IP grabber is a simple web service used for logging and collecting statistics of a website or an IP address by sending them a specific link.

For PSN or Xbox Live users we will now have a look at the best IP puller, sniffer and grabbers available on the market.
