winpcap and ESX Vmware issues

Hi,

We are experiencing an issue that when we use an application running winpcap the network card loses connection. As soon as we stop the application the network returns on a
ESX host with VMware. (windows server 2008)


Anyone experience this?

Are you using the VMXNET3 network interface, if not try replacing with the VMXNET3 interface card. (make sure you have VMware Tools installed to supported this network interface).

Have you also enabled the vSwitch for Promiscuous  Mode?

That's makes it different then.

Same Make and Model of Host?

Same Build of ESXi server?

What physical switch configuration are you using?

can you upload screenshots of your networking?

does it only happen in this VM?
