WinPcap is the industry-standard tool for link-layer network access in Windows environments: it allows applications to capture and transmit network packets bypassing the protocol stack, and has additional useful features, including kernel-level packet filtering, a network statistics engine and support for remote packet capture.

WinPcap consists of a driver, that extends the operating system to provide low-level network access, and a library that is used to easily access the low-level network layers. This library also contains the Windows version of the well known libpcap Unix API.

Thanks to its set of features, WinPcap is the packet capture and filtering engine of many open source and commercial network tools, including protocol analyzers, network monitors, network intrusion detection systems, sniffers, traffic generators and network testers. Some of these networking tools, like Wireshark, Nmap, Snort, ntop are known and used throughout the networking community.

Installation Instructions

- This is an experimental version, we don't guarantee it will work correctly in any situation.
- At the moment only source code is provided. You will have to compile it on your own.
- We didn't develop this code, so we don't provide any support for it.
- This version might not be aligned with the latest version of WinPcap.

The CE version was tested successfully (not by us) on Compaq Pocket PC and HP Jornada.

Known Limitations:
1. The driver can be used to open only one adapter that is present in the system. not more than one adapter can be opened at any given point of time. Also, only one instance of the adapter can be opened.
2. Statistics mode is not present.
3. Only one request at a time is supported, requests are not queued.
4. It works on Windows CE 3.0. may work on CE 2.x also but it was never tested.
