Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your help. I need to read all internet data passed from any internet application to OpenTransport layer. The objective is the data must be validated before it is passed on the network. Is it possible to stack a third party layer in OpenTransport to capture data? When the data is ready for validation it will be sent to Windows NT . Is it possible to send data to WindowNT from Mac? If possible send me detailed answer. Your help is highly appreciated. I'm working on windows and new to Mac.

Validation!!! We don't need no stinking validation!!!

I am still a bit confused. I understand parking validation...why does NT need to validate Mac data? If the NT needs to validate the data, shouldn't you look for an NT solution.

Look here:

I could be more specific if I understood the question.

I have a big application running on Mac. The data generated by the application needs to be passed on to NT server. The same way NT needs to send some data to Mac application. What should I do for implementation. I can write a socket application on Mac and send data to small webserver running on NT. But I want better answer.

Have you looked at OTSessionWatcher?  It's an extension which captures OT Sessions (duh!). You may be able to hack it to meet your ends.

Intercepting data is ILLEGAL, when it comes down to packet sniffing.  That's just like tapping into a phone line.  However, transfer of information to a specific location is not.

Now, what do you want NT to do with the data?  What kind of data are the Mac's application(s) sending?  At least give an example.
