Free AirPcap Adapters at Sharkfest

Although I haven't decided whether I will be able to attend, I wanted to let you know about Sharkfest. Sharkfest is all about WireShark(r) and it is put on by people who make WinPcap. We use WinPcap in NetScanTools Pro. WinPcap is a packet driver ( Wireshark uses it to capture packets and we use it to both capture and generate packets. Wireshark is the best free network packet analysis tool I know of. The packet capture files that NetScanTools Pro saves can be opened by Wireshark for in-depth analysis.

Here are the details about the conference:
