Re: [PLUG] Tools for analyzing network traffic from personal computer?

I know precisely squat about Mac's, so I don't know if it's an option or not. On Linux boxes I've used "iftop". I've kept it in my toolbox and used it a bunch of time for stuff like this.

I'm running OSX on a laptop and trying to get a better handle on what sort of network traffic is happening on it. I'm `using netstat -t -a` which outputs a very long list (600+) of tcp / udp connections. I have a psuedo-professional curiosity about what all this stuff is. I'm wondering if there are any tools or resources folks would recommend that could help me analyze the network traffic, to detect malware for instance, and also just as an educational exercise.
