The interface of the program is divided in several main sections that can be used. First you can inspect the main instruments that are used by the application. They are situated in the first window that opens and from it you can use the Capture, Capture Help, Files and Online sections of the app. When you click on Start in the Capture section the app will show you all the protocols that are used at the moment. There you can view Number, Time, Source, Destination, Protocol, Length and Info of the protocols. There is additional information in a second window below the real time view panel.
