There is no pycapc windows binaries for python 2.6

I tried to compile it myself : look like winpcap sources are needed
I tried to compile winpcap myself : look like Windows "driver SDK" is needed
For what I remember, "driver SDK" is not free, and I not willing to use it
illegally nor buy it.

winpcap development is free. 
http://www.winpcap.org/install/bin/WpdPack_4_0_2.zip

1) Download MinGW32. Install to c:\wingw32
2) path=%path%;c:\wingw32\bin
3) Download winpcap development pack from above. Unzip to c:\WpdPack
4) From pypcap-1.1 directory. 
   > python .\setup.py --with-pcap="C:\WpdPack"
   > python .\setup.py build -cmingw32
   > python .\setup.py install

Sorry, this doesn't work.
First, the MinGW32 folder should be c:\MinGW.
Even so, second, there's no Python that gets installed with MinGW!!! Nor any 
option 
to do so. g++, etc., yes. Buy no python. I AM running the standard Python 2.6 
however, but when I try 
  setup.py --with-pcap="C:\WpdPack"
it's clueless about --with, says bad option.
Appreciate any help you can give, I'm blocked.
Thanks in advance, -david

Try this (after installing MinGW, adding its \bin subdirectory to your PATH and
extracting WpdPack to C:\WpdPack as shown above):

python setup.py config --with-pcap="C:\WpdPack"
python setup.py build -cmingw32
python setup.py bdist_wininst

The installer will be put into the \dist subdirectory of pypcap.

An alternative way:

The default argument of --with-pcap is "..\WpdPack". So if you put WpdPack to a
sibling directory of your pypcap directory, you don't need to specify it 
explicitly:

python setup.py config

Moreover, you can set the default compiler for distutils to MinGW by creatiing 
a file
"C:\Python26\Lib\distutils\distutils.cfg" that has the following two lines:

[build]
compiler = mingw32

Then you do not need to specify the compiler:

python setup.py build

Hope that helps.

Regards
Dirk

(On WinXP/Python 2.6)
I've gotten a bunch of it to work by modifying the python 2.5 binaries in a hex
editor (after extracting pcap.pyd). This is obviously pretty dangerous, but it's
worked so far:

import pcap #with pcap.pyd in the current directory
#see http://www.monkey.org/~dugsong/pypcap/pcap.html for reference
int = pcap.pcap(pcap.lookupdev())
timestamp, pkt = int.next()

print timestamp
print str(pkt) #this gives you the actual contents of the buffer

Just a quick note.

1) Download and install MinGW32.
2) add MinGW's "\bin" path to your PATH variable
3) Download winpcap development pack 
http://www.winpcap.org/install/bin/WpdPack_4_0_2.zip. Unzip to c:\WpdPack
4) From pypcap-1.1 directory: 
   > python setup.py config --with-pcap="C:\WpdPack"
   > python setup.py build -cmingw32
   > python setup.py bdist_wininst

The installer will be put into the \dist subdirectory of pypcap.



This worked!
But a side note will be that your anti virus application will most likely 
detect this 
installer as a security-risk to your computer. I'm no security expert so i 
don't know 
why this happens but it will. Tried it with the latest Norton (as of date, 
"Norton 
Internet Security 2010") and McAfee.


Don't forget to install the rest of the demanded packages:

There is one caveat in using MinGW to build Windows binaries for pypcap:
Just building it "as is" will result in a binary which uses two different C 
libaries.
msvcrt and msvcr71 (or msvcr90 for Python 2.7). This can be shown a tool like 
Dependency Walker.

This will cause crashes on Vista and Win7. XP does not seem to be affected.

msvcrt is included because of the strdup() function and the name mangling 
MinGW's libmoldname does to convert strdup() to the "leading underscore" 
_strdup() name Windows uses.

Workaround: After generating the pcap.c file with Pyrex or Cython, replace all 
occurences of strdup() in pcap.c with _strdup(). Then rebuild. msvcrt should 
not be used anymore.

If somebody has a better solution for this, please let me know.

Regards
Dirk

Hello, 

I compiled the version for anyone who looks for it...
Python26: http://ul.to/j6wuam0n
Python27: http://uploaded.to/file/773pq95y

one has to unpack it into the site-packages manually since i donnot know how to 
build a .msi

Regards, 

Me
