I'm sorry - this was my mistake.  It seems as though
XP (which I previously had installed on this box) and
W2K3 somehow enumerated the network interfaces
in the reverse order, and as a result I was plugged into
the wrong subnet.

It worked fine, once I had the interfaces configured and
connected properly.


P.S. It's a shame that www.ethereal.com doesn't say
anything to refer readers to www.wireshark.com.  Can't
this be changed?  I found out about wireshark only by

Subject: [Wireshark-users] Wireshark on Windows 2003 x64?


I installed the 4.0 Alpha 1 version of WinPCap which is supposed to work
with W2K3 x64, and installed 0.99.2 of wireshark, but my captures always
come up empty.

I'm an experienced ethereal user from other platforms, so it's probably not
"operator error", but I've never tried this on an x64 platform before.

Any tips?  Known problems?

Also note I'm running VMware Server on this machine, and it's done
some voodoo network interface plumbing. Is VMware known to cause issues?

I've never used VMware on x64, but I do have it on several 32bit machines, and it doesn't cause any problem to WinPcap.

Which type of adapter were you trying to use? What is wired or wireless?

Can you please try capturing with WinDump and see if it works or not?

WinDump is available at www.winpcap.org/windump

Have a nice day

Please respond to me directly as I'm not on the mailing list.
