    Before we continue on, I need you to do something important (no doubt others will attempt to answer your question below me, but try to do it anyway). I (we) need to know how much networking knowledge you have, is your mobile on the LAN with your box or is it via a VPN or is it purely in the tubes.

    What function does your linux box perform, is it a router, server, client, host, bridge, or redundant machine.

    There are a lot of tools to do MiTM, but it depends on your infrastructure and what you are actually trying to achieve.

    If there is a language barrier (reading your post seems like English is not your first language), it may be worth your time to draw a simple picture of what your setup looks like, include any firewalls you might have, and the "internet" if you are connecting via that at any time.
    Still not underestimating the power...

    There is no such thing as bad information - There is truth in the data, so you sift it all, even the crap stuff.

    I think I know where he's coming from...

    Short answer: Yes. You can do man-in-the-middle attacks. However - there is no universal program that where you just go click click click and then you have all this amazing infomation from the packs.

    I'm fairly new to this but I hope that by book marking this sub-forum and reading a few threads I'll learn it gradually. In no hurry

    It's to my knowledge that an app suite, 'metasploit' allows you to do some stuff with man in the middle, capuring packets from HTTP traffic and then getting cookies etc to access web mail accounts etc...

    Should give you some direction.

    Actually metasploit really wouldn't be the app your looking for, ettercap would be more along those lines, along with the dsniff suite ... or for windows there is always cain & able.
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.
