Pocket analyzer and VPNs

1) examine WireShark, a well-used network-packet analyzer. For this discussion:

Define a packet analyzer and describe its use
List commonly used packet analyzers (beyond WireShark)
List best practices for analyzing packets
Describe uses (good and bad, ie. hacker) of a packet analyzer
