Hi, i need help adding the to my application.

Im using this code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using PcapDotNet.Core;

namespace ObtainingTheDeviceList
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // Retrieve the device list from the local machine
            IList<LivePacketDevice> allDevices = LivePacketDevice.AllLocalMachine;

            if (allDevices.Count == 0)
                Console.WriteLine("No interfaces found! Make sure WinPcap is installed.");

            // Print the list
            for (int i = 0; i != allDevices.Count; ++i)
                LivePacketDevice device = allDevices[i];
                Console.Write((i + 1) + ". " + device.Name);
                if (device.Description != null)
                    Console.WriteLine(" (" + device.Description + ")");
                    Console.WriteLine(" (No description available)");

Thats on the tutorial and im just trying to get it to work with my c# app but its not working.

I even tried adding that code into a c# class but do not know how i can call it into my application. All im trying to do is to display the available devices on a dropdown.

Can anyone please help me?

Hi mackanga,


What do you mean "not working"?

What exactly is wrong (compilation error, linkage error, exception)?


Did you follow the "Using Pcap.Net in your programs" section in the User Guide?
