Hi all,

I use WinPcap on Windows XP and Vista
I have a few questions -
1. Does pcap_loop support non-blocking mode and how?

No. pcap_loop creates an internal loop that invokes you receiver callback 
only when packets are received. So the concept of non-blocking I/O does not 
make much sense here. I suggest you to use pcap_next_ex for packet 

2. Is pcap_open_live supported on XP and Vista?

Yes. Are you encountering problems with this API?

Have a nice day
