No, WinPcap uses a protocol driver, so it's basically a passive component in
the networking stack. Please refer to

You need to develop an NDIS intermediate driver or something similar to
filter the packets (I know that Vista will have some enhanced support for
this). I don't know if there are any libraries on the market that allow you
to easily develop such components.
Have a nice day
