Detailed Description : Sniffer - Compaq 386 - This portable actually has a 286 motherboard inside in spite of being labeled a 386 externally. It has the additional expansion module on the back side to hold the network adapters needed to make this into a Sniffer. The screen is a technology that was used for a while before we all bacame addicted to color monitors - it is a plasma screen. It is monochrome, but is orange on black. This is actually a very readable color combination and easy on the eyes. Unfortunately the hard drive on this unit has crashed. Right now it has no dirve & no software, so it is no longer a Sniffer. It does have the sniffer logos and two NICs. One is a Token Ring NIC, apparently an IBM NIC, although we have not checked, and an Ethernet NIC of unknown origin. (It has AUI & 10Base2 ports but not 10BaseT.)
