I'll let you know if I cross your issue, but I'm somewhat new to both.  I
will say this: I libnet uses the packet.dll (winpcap) so look for the
function in it to carry out what you need.  If not you will likely have to
implement your own --extending libnet and using packet.dll calls.

but others may have more precise advice for you...
