I search a network tracer for my mac on osX 10.7 but I don't find a good sotfware. I would like a graphic interface (netstat is too root for me :) ) where I can see any request on any port and to any host destination in realtime (if possible).

Do you know a software like this on osX ?

Sounds to me that you're describing Wireshark. It can be found at and requires that you have XQuartz installed.
