may not have done everything.

I have WinPcap-Nmap 4.01 installed (never had anything older installed),
but the command line says the following....
nmap -v scanme.nmap.org
WARNING: Could not import all necessary WinPcap functions.  You may need
to upgrade to version 3.1 or higher from http://www.winpcap.org.
Resorting to connect() mode -- Nmap may not function completely

Is there a difference between Nmap's WinPcap and standard WinPCap?  I
saw there were comments in WinPcaps forums that Wireshark had a modified
WinPcap.  It can get scary when different groups want their own modified
versions of standard things like WinPcap.

thanks for your thoughts on this...


I think the main difference between the winpcap from the winpcap site
and the winpcap that comes with nmap is that nmap uses its own
installer to install winpcap.

They both use the same dll files.

There may still be some differences between the install logic between
nmap and winpcap but I was pretty sure all those things had been
worked out.
