SP2 compatibility with Framework

Hello Anurag!

Here's some step to do in order to ENABLE the sending of RAW socket,
disabled by the SP2:

1) Open Control panel
2) Turn on Classic Visuallization
3) Open Administration Tools
4) Services
5) There is "Windows Firewall / Internet Condivision (ICS)"
6) There stop service and disable it in General settings but when you
reboot the pc services start anyway so in "Connection setting" on "Hardwar
Profile" you must set to "Profile 1" DISABLED!

This should do the trick. If anyone is aware of a command line version of
it, please be so kind to send me the details.



        I also encounter the same problems about error creating socket.
Does Framework have problems with Winxp SP2. Nmap also had problems with
SP2 and they had to come out with a totally new version. It goes this
When an Nmap user asked MS why security tools
such as Nmap broke, MS responded[1]:

 "We have removed support for TCP sends over RAW sockets in SP2.
  We surveyed applications and found the only apps using this on XP were
  people writing attack tools."

What is the workaround for Error Creating Socket problem?
