    I googled it and it says its some kind of hack tool? I play Armored strike online and I occasionally get disconnected so i downloaded wireshark to look for anything wierd. I got a packet that said it was from sipvicious and the user agent was friendly port scaner or something like that. I saved the pcap if anybody wants to see it. Is this whats disconnecting me?

    From Wikipedia:

    The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is an IETF-defined signaling protocol widely used for controlling communication sessions such as voice and video calls over Internet Protocol (IP). The protocol can be used for creating, modifying and terminating two-party (unicast) or multiparty (multicast) sessions. Sessions may consist of one or several media streams.

    More info, based on what you said:

    SIPVicious suite is a set of tools that can be used to audit SIP based VoIP systems. It currently consists of four tools:

    • svmap - this is a sip scanner. Lists SIP devices found on an IP range
    • svwar - identifies active extensions on a PBX
    • svcrack - an online password cracker for SIP PBX
    • svreport - manages sessions and exports reports to various formats
    • svcrash - attempts to stop unauthorized svwar and svcrack scans

    I couldn't say if that's what's disconnecting you, or if the disconnection has to do with something else, but maybe the above info will help you a little bit.
