[Winpcap-users] Telling the difference between devices

I'm sure it is in the documentation, but I just can't seem to find it.


I have a Windows based system with 6 GigE ports (all based on the same Intel
chips).  When I call pcap_findalldevs, it returns a list that contains 6
IDENTICAL strings for the ports. Pcap_open_live expects me to pass it that
identification string, but since they are all the same, how do I identify
which of the 6 ports I want to open?


Also, how can I open more than one port so that I receive traffic from more
than one port at a time?


Thanks in advance for any assistance or suggestions.
