Software Installation Guide

In this document

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 systems.
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.

libpcap versions

Napatech libpcap is based on the libpcap 1.6.2, 1.7.3 and 1.8.1 releases.
