Packet Capture Innovators Wrap-Up

Posted by riverbedtest on May 26, 2011

Tuesday was our much-publicized Packet Capture Innovators event on Twitter.  Thanks go out to our guests of honor, Steve McCanne, Gerald Combs, and Loris Degioanni, and to everyone who attended the event, and especially to those who asked questions.  Turnout and response were very positive, especially for a first-time event like this.

Wondering if the WinPCap folks plan to migrate to NDIS6, so that Windows Vista/7 users can finally capture 802.11 traffic. #packetcap
