    Raw sockets in windows

    I'm just wondering, is there a way at all to use raw sockets at all in a windows environment -specifically Vista- ? I have searched google with no luck on this.

    EDIT: This is likely going to need to be moved to network communication. Mods!

    I believe that the usage of raw sockets in Vista was disabled.

    If you wish to send raw packets you can try using Winpcap.
