Hi, does it have to be a rebol? If you want to watch your packets, I would suggest you fine tool called Ethereal. It is completly free and powerfull. Otherwise - how would you achieve it? You have to go to Ethernet layer to watch your communication. If you want to use just Rebol + TCP, - you can't do it im technically. The only possible way is to put proxy (you can find one in library) in-between your server and client - that way you will be able to control what is being communicated ... -pekr-
