Some help on vb.net 2008 and Win7

Oct 6, 2009 at 3:33 PM

Is there any example code on this site on this project?
The examples from the site "Tamir Gal | SharpPcap" doesn't seem to exactly match the structure of the current build.

It seems I cant get any reaction from the PcapDotNet

I have some simple code, pasted below: but I get nothing when I start it up.

Imports PcapDotNet
' Get a list of devices

Private
Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

devices.Open(PcapDotNet.Core.LivePacketDevice.DefaultSnapshotLength, Core.PacketDeviceOpenAttributes.NoCaptureRemote, 1000)

MsgBox(devices.Attributes)

End
Sub

Hi BlackWand,

 

I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to figure out.

  1. WinPcap current stable build doesn't support Windows 7 as you can see in the WinPcap page: http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm
  2. There is an example project for getting all the devices in the Developer's Pack available at the Downloads section.
  3. In your code, I don't understand what is the 'devices' variable. Where is it initialized?

 

Give me more details about the problem you are having and I'll try to help you.

The cause for why this isn't working is most probably because of Windows 7.
I'm no longer in need to fix myself a sniffer, not yet anyways.

Thanks for the answer thought.

Pcap.Net version 0.5.0 was released today.

This version supports WinPcap 4.1.1 and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bits).
