Monitoring communication sniffers

By default, sniffers are disabled. If you enable sniffers in the network configuration, the application data subfolders, HTTP, UPnP, XMPP, and so on, will be created. XML files will be created containing any communication taking place. As with events, references to XSL transforms will be available, making it easy to read the contents in a browser. Old files will be automatically deleted.

Sniffers are useful when troubleshooting communication. But sniffers provide a way to access otherwise secured communication. Therefore, make sure to disable sniffers when they are not needed.
