The WinPcap is an industry standards tools for the link layer networks it is access in the Windows environment. It is highly useful to the users and allows the applications to captures and transmits the network packet bypassing a protocol stacks, and it contains additional useful feature, which including the kernel-level packets filtering, the network statistics engines and it support for the remote packet captures.
The WinPcap consist of the driver, it extending operating systems to provide the low-level networks accesses, and the library that are used for easily access a low-level networks layer. These libraries are also contains Windows versions of well-known libpcaps Unix API. The WinPcap is with packet captures and it filtering the engine with many numbers of open sources and the commercial networks tool, which including the protocol analyzers, the network monitors, the network intrusion detections system, the sniffers, the traffic generator and the network tester. Some of this networking tool is like the Wireshark, the Nmap, the Snort, the ntop are well known and it is used throughout a networking community. The WinPcap also home of the WinDump, a Windows versions of popular tcpdump tools. A WinDump is used to watching, to diagnose and it save for the disk networks traffic according by various complex rule. Many know that the WinPcap projects have been pretty silent for with quite for some time, it is no release, no email from the developer, no announcement. For the past one years, people been extremely too busy by transitioning from CACE startups environment to bigger reality for the Riverbed. These transitions have been exciting and it will be rewarding experiences, but it has limited amount of the free time for a WinPcap updates.
WinPcap has futures like While the users have not be done it much recently, this will be the intention for catch ups on support sides by being active with responding to an emails of their user, and it will catches up the developments side by well. WinPcap has purpose is to gives these kinds of accesses to Win32 application; it also provides facility to like capture the raw packet, by both one destined to a machine where this will be running and a ones exchanged with other hosts by shared medias. Then it helps to filter a packet according to the user-specified rule before by dispatching them in an application, it helps to transmit the raw packet to networks and then it helps to gather the statistical information’s on network traffics.
