WinPcap: The Windows Packet Capture Library

Netgroup's Sponsors

WinPcap started as a University project in 1998 within the Computer Networks Group (NetGroup) at the Politecnico di Torino. It was published on the Web, for the first time, in 1999.  Over the years, several companies and individuals have contributed (with both financial support and ideas) to the NetGroup, and have been instrumental in implementing some of the features in WinPcap (and the other tools developed by the NetGroup). 

Since May 2005 the WinPcap project has moved to a new site,, since the WinPcap project is no longer being maintained at Politecnico di Torino.

At this time we would like to acknowledge all of the organizations and people who contributed to the Netgroup and the WinPcap project during the University years.  Below is a list of all of the contributors.  THANK YOU!
