Software Product Description
System Requirements:SmartSniff can capture TCP/IP packets on any 32-bit Windows operating system (Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista/7/8/10) as long as WinPcap capture driver is installed and works properly with your network adapter.
Under Windows 2000/XP (or greater), SmartSniff also allows you to capture TCP/IP packets without installing any capture driver, by using 'Raw Sockets' method. However, this capture method has some limitations and problems:
- Outgoing UDP and ICMP packets are not captured.
- On Windows XP SP1 outgoing packets are not captured at all - Thanks to Microsoft's bug that appeared in SP1 update... This bug was fixed on SP2 update, but under Vista, Microsoft returned back the outgoing packets bug of XP/SP1.
- On Windows Vista with SP1, only UDP packets are captured. TCP packets are not captured at all.
- On Windows 7, it seems that 'Raw Sockets' method works properly again, at least for now...

Other Thoughts: Great packet sniffer.

Larger sniffers offer more features, but this one is small and easy.
