[Winpcap-users] pcap_loop callback timing problem..

I`m creating an application that can sniff packets from a network
interface real-time, whilst repeating only certain packets to a
different network interface.


I have found that the callback is being called multiple times in a burst
style, rather than as packets arrive. If the network sends packets every
100ms, I will receive 10 callbacks immediately after each other - with
each burst of 10 callbacks spaced about a second apart..


This is causing problems at the far end which expects a constant flow of
packets, is there anything I can do get the callback to trigger as and
when packets arrive?
