Unfortunaly, I don't have any direct experience with using WinPcap over long periods of time (months), and on top of my head, I don't remember anyone discussing about it on the winpcap mailing lists :-(

Have a nice day

  Hello forum, 

     I need to design a program on Windows that takes data from a control system that uses an old protocol which is not IP stack based, but propietary. However it uses standard ethernet.

     I consider Winpcap very interesting for this application because give the freedom to send and receive arbitrary packets for this non common protocol. However this machine needs to run 7x24 hours a year with minimum maintenance. I would like to know if you have some insigth about applications that runs continuosly the library without problems. 

    I saw the impressive tool list that uses Winpcap, but I am not sure if these kind of tools are running "on demand" (for some time and then restarted) or continuosly.

    Any information will be very helpful. I consider a value added the offer for paid technical support, so I hope I can use this good library.

    Thanks and regards,
