  I have tried an application of traffic monitor by application based on 
WinPCap library, but I have a special need, that is detect the traffic from 
a virtual machine based on VMWare technology. I install the traffic monitor 
inside a Windows XP Virtual machine and the traffic inside is detected, but 
I was expecting that if I install it in the VM host machine the monitor detects 
the traffic how if it come from the VMWare Player application, but it not 
happens, like no traffic exists. The VMWare player create virtual networks, 
but the real traffic is bridged to real NIC and should be detected, or not?
  Maybe, VMWare Player use an unpredictable way to access network. 
There a way to detect it? Because I need to know how much traffic each 
VM is using amog many VM's without put a traffic monitor por each one, 
but only in the host machine.

Thanks for advance
