It looks just the same as we know it

And snooper kind of looks the same but has been updated

There is also a conversation viewer that comes in very handy which lets you view the SIP conversation between hops

Something I had problems with is the XML data in the body of a SIP Message, you had to copy and paste into an XML browser to view this in a good way.
This one is big I think, now we have an inline XML viewer

There is a log selector but not sure how that works jet, need some more digging around.

Another handy feature is you can open the tekst file and go to the location where you are located in the snooper tool

The test file opens in notepad on the correct message

a Time Shift tool as in my local time the logs are usually a few hours off

Some other options available

Thanks for bringing back our favorite troubleshooting tools and their additional features
