This document contains information about installation and configuration of libpcap with
Napatech extensions (Napatech libpcap) for SmartNICs with Napatech Software Suite (3GD).
For information about installation of Napatech libpcap for use with Napatech Driver
Software (2GD), please refer to version 17 of this document or to DN-0236.
Note: Napatech libpcap only applies to Linux and FreeBSD operating
If a user-defined installation directory was used for installation of the
Napatech Linux or FreeBSD Driver, this directory must replace
/opt/napatech3/ everywhere throughout this document. However, for
versions of libpcap before 1.7.3, if the ntpcap.ini file is used, it
must be located in the /opt/napatech3/config directory. So if a
user-defined installation directory was used, the ntpcap.ini file must
be moved for Napatech libpcap to find it.
Napatech libpcap is based on the libpcap 1.6.2, 1.7.3 and
