Capturing all packets...

Hi group,
my question is short: is possible in windows by any way to capture all
packets, at the interface previously setted up to promisc mode in user
level? In linux is possible to do that by using socket(PF_PACKET,
SOCK_RAW|SOCK_DGRAM, ....et cetera), but windows is different. I have
read some issues that here is not possible to use and PF_PACKET family
during creating of socket on the windows architecture and also than is
not possible to swith the network card to promisc mode from user mode.
After plenty hours of googling  i have found some code which is able
to set the network card to promisc mode using modifying of NIDS flags.
I have found some issues saying that is possible, but that i never
have seen working code. Next problem is sending of arbitary packets in
user moder. I dont want to use winpcap, or any other kernel-level
library.

Do you have any suggestions?
Tomas Korcak
