    I use ethereal quite extensively. IMHO, it is very reliable and meets all my requirements. Ethereal uses the Winpcap lib to capture live data on a Windows network. So, I would say that the capability and reliability I have found in ethereal would also emcompass Winpcap since it is the foundation for ethereal.

    I agree, but I've never attempted to write something that works with this lib.
    Is it coding friendly?

    Ive used winpcap several times for different projects. It is very easy to use, and works pretty well.

    The only downside that Ive seen with it, is that its intermediate driver doesnt seem to work with non ethernet connections. In other words, it wont work with most modem and ISDN connections.
