Tcpdump Tunes

Think tcpdump is too boring? Put some music to your packets!

Takes tcpdump human output via stdin, spits out a MIDI file to stdout.

This is a terrible hack. It's mostly interesting with TCP traffic.

Installation

  1. Clone this repo
  2. Install python-midi from here: https://github.com/vishnubob/python-midi/
  3. Enjoy some sweet jams

Usage

tcpdump -n -c 100 | ./tcpdump_tunes.py | timidity -

  • The -n option is required since domain lookups are slow and my regex is lazy.
  • The -c option is required since the MIDI file can't be created until all notes (packets) are accounted for

Credits

Thanks to Ryan O'Hara for the idea
