Hi, I have a network application which works offline too using lookback IP ( I can log all that app's packets using Ethereal (a network protocol analyzer, based on WinPcap), but I only can log packets online (send/received from a remote IP).

So I need a program that can log loopback packets (without being online, using IP Do you know a program for that?

    I'm sorry NetworkArchitek, I should give more information about my system: I'm using Windows 98 SE and I can't use loopback packets feature in CommView ("This functionality is available under Windows NT/2000/XP/2003"). I installed CommView and 'Settings => Install Loopback Driver' menu button isn't avaliable :-(

    Maybe I'm asking too much, but there are another app to capture loopback packets?? (a freeware one would be great ^-^)

    OK, I found one that works for Windows 98 by myself.

    I'll give points for you NetworkArchitek anyway, but if you know another program, please post here.
