Win 7/8 normal user needs access to raw sockets
Posted on 2015-01-26
We are building a busybox script to run under windows 7/8 but have run into a problem where running some commands either from a script or command line gives us a 'raw socket' error. In other words, the only way to run the command is to become admin.
A good example of this would be being either at the command line or using GUI based WinMTR.
The tool doesn't want to run, showing an error of 'Unable to get raw socket'.
What could I do to allow this tool and perhaps others to run by giving them access to raw sockets?
Am I missing a dll or a permission on win?
