[Winpcap-users] Does winpcap support standard 10G Ethernet boards ?

10Gbps cards are supported, with the following limitations:

- do not expect to capture at full speed on those cards. It just won't happen.
- if the card support TCP-chimney, you will need to disable it otherwise you won't be able to capture packets (this limitation is not specific to 10G cards)

In general, WinPcap does not make any distinction between 10/100/1000Mb or 10Gb cards. They just need to be exposed as standard network cards.

Have a nice day

  Hi all,

  I need to buy one 10G Ethernet board, but first I would like to check if winpcap supports these kind of boards ?

  Especially, does it support :
  - Broadcom NetXtreme II 57710 Single Port 10GBase-T Ethernet PCI-Express Network Interface Card ?
  - or SMC10GPCIe-10BT TigerCard 10G ?
  - or Intel 10 Gigabit XF SR Server Adapter ?
  (OS should be Linux or MS) 

  If none of these boards are supported, do you know any other 10G board (except CACE TurboCAP ou Endace) which could run with Winpcap ?

  Thanks very much
