Hi i am currently installing Snort and Libnet 1.1.2...
unfortunatlly i am having trouble installing Libnet
If anyone is will to help here is my current standing
I'm using Visual C++ 6.0 with SDK
I have WinPcap 3.01alpha
I have my Include files pointing to
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\include
and my Library files
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\lib
but when i try to compile libnet.dsw
i keep getting "various" errors
such as libnet.h is not a valid directory or file exension
or in my debug screen i get
(path)fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'pcap.h': No such file or directory
as well as
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\include\iphlpapi.h(183) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ')' before identifier 'pStats'
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\include\iphlpapi.h(183) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'pStats'
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\include\iphlpapi.h(183) : error C2059: syntax error : ';'
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\include\iphlpapi.h(183) : error C2059: syntax error : ','
c:\program files\microsoft sdk\include\iphlpapi.h(185) : error C2059: syntax error : ')'
I know pcap has to do with my WinPcap (include)?
and iphlpapi is with the SDK?
but i have no idea how to fix the problem
Any suggestion will welcomed
P.S. I also started from scratch riped everything out and reinstalled (winpcap,sdk,libnet 1.1.2 that order)

I went to sourceforge to check on platform/compiler support for you and....
Libnet supports the following platforms and compilers:
* Unix (gcc) -- tested with Linux, FreeBSD and OSF/1
* DOS (djgpp)
* Windows (djgpp+RSXNTDJ, Mingw32, or MSVC)
edit: Hopefully the Win32 port of Snort installed easily. The lastest port included all the libraries etc.:
"The snort-1.7-win32 source code now contains all version of snort-win32 and contains all needed header files and libraries. Compilation should be as simple as running 'nmake' in the WIN32-PRJ directory because there is now a WIN32 Makefile present."
