[Winpcap-users] Sending a packet to localhost?

Is it possible to send a packet to localhost and have the application
receive it? On Linux, there is (at least) lo and eth0. I tried sending
a TCP packet to both lo and eth0, however, it seems like the Linux
TCP/IP stack and application do not receive the packet. The exact same
packet works on Windows. Is this not possible?
