I am using a linux based machine. Using tethereal, how would I go about monitoring irc traffic and also viewing all irc traffic on my linux based machine? What is the command I should use for this process? Any help with this at all would be great.
Thanks in advance.

Tethereal is an network protocol analyzer and its a command line interface. It lets you capture packet transmission of live networks. Tethereal is part of Ethereal (wireshark) distribution. The text version is called "Tethereal" and GUI based version is called “Wireshark”. There is lot of information in this "manual document", regarding the application of various command line options. The below command captures the next 10 packets received on eth0 in the file "xyz" without performing name resolution.
[root@cherry /root]# tethereal -i eth0 -c 10 -n -w XYZ
Tethereal can be run like the session shown below:
