Wasn't ethereal renamed to wireshark?

IIRC there are some security issues in wireshark, which is why there is no package ...

But OpenBSD comes with tcpdump(8), so you don't need wireshark.

tcpdump is great for grabbing packets off the wire. But it's not that great of an analyser. That's where things like wireshark come in handy, to analyse the flow and trace files that you generate using tcpdump.

Wireshark is not officially available for OpenBSD. Most people use tcpdump(8).

Ettercap is great. You might also want to check out dsniff, to see if any of your passwords are traversing the network in cleartext.
