Packets not received?

Recommended Posts

Hi again.

Using wireshark on the router, I can see that packets are being sent to my WinPE machine that is connected to the network with a valid IP address through DHCP. It communicates with WDS fine.

However, the packets are not being received by certain software I am using.

I tried running PaketMon as this is lite and thought PE could handle it, but it shows no packets coming in at all on the machine itself.

I have stopped the firewall that PE runs, just in case it was interfering.

I am using the Windows 7 boot.wim and install.wim to get to PE interface, and shift-F10ing out to try these methods.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why apps are not picking up packets?

Of course, the apps work in XP fine, with the same packets.

Thanks

You may require one of the additional packages for the PE. I do not know which are already included in the Boot.wim. Try creating a WinPE 3.0 from the WAIK and running your program.

Using a different packet sniffer (IPTools), I changed the mode to NDIS and managed to see packets

RAW mode doesn't seem to see them...

Is this a limitation in PE, or are you aware of a way around this?

Is there any technical information on this at all?

You may have to run Depends on it from within the PE to see if you were missing something. There are some differences in Win PE 3.0 from v2.x and I haven't figured them all out yet. One may if you are using x64 installer, since the PE is either x86 or x64 and no WOW64 support at all.
