libpcap (Packet CAPture) provides a portable framework for low-level network monitoring. Applications include network statistics collection, security monitoring, network debugging, etc.
Since almost every system vendor provides a different interface for packet capture, and since there are several tools that require this functionality, we've created this system-independent API to ease in porting and to alleviate the need for several system-dependent packet capture modules in each application.
libpcap for Debian ------------------ If you receive messages telling you the packet type is not supported or is deprecated check that CONFIG_PACKET is set to either `Y' or `M'. You should also check that /etc/modules.conf has the line alias net-pf-17 af_packet Feel free to report bugs. -- Anand Kumria <email@example.com>, Tue, 28 Nov 2000 02:04:28 EST
