Added large packet (jumbo) support and basic support for external protocol decoders (via a .DLL). Also added the "connection filter" capability where you select a packet that is part of a TCP, UDP, or IP connection you want to watch, then press 'C' to create a temporary display filter showing just packets from that connection.


July 13, 2004 - Version 2.00.0022

Fixed old bug from PCANDIS that found it's way into PCAMPR. The bug caused packets to contain bad data after the lookahead buffer on some adapters. Fixed typo in NETBIOS decoder.

March 18, 2004 - Version 2.00.0017

Added "/RESERVE=nn" option to tell the OS to increase the process working set size to at least "nn" MB of memory. This will also set the process priority class to HIGH_PRIORITY_CLASS.


March 2, 2004 - Version 2.00.0016

Modified buffer management to use malloc()/free() rather then HeapXxx() functions due to memory creep with the HeapXxx() functions. Fixed bug when printing in line mode. Enhanced UBICOM protocol decoder.


January 26, 2004 - Version 2.00.0015

Added "/BUFFERSIZE=nn" command line option to allow user to set low-level capture buffer size (between 2K and 2048K). Changed default low-level capture buffer size to 512K.


December 4, 2003 - Version 2.00.0014

Added RTP decoder (for ports 5004 and 65154). Also put in possible fix for crash seen when using F4 to reset the capture buffer while under heavy load.


November 20, 2003 - Version 2.00.0013

Fixed bug in copying generated packets (trying to copy too much). Also fixed decode of SACK options in TCP packets.


September 19, 2003 - Version 2.00.0009

Added code to enforce cleaner shutdown of capture threads to prevent system lock up.


August 1, 2003 - Version 2.00.0008

Fixed problem with loading REC_START_TIME data from PVD files. Started working towards an event driven system rather then just a packet driven system.


June 3, 2003 - Version 2.00.0007

Started adding statistics. Made all PlaySound()s asynchronous.


May 27, 2003 - Version 2.00.0006

Fix install issue.


May 26, 2003 - Version 2.00.0005

Added support for "Multi-Packet Read". This should eliminate the chance of losing packets under reasonable conditions.

Fixed minor bug in UDP decode (if UDP header it too short).

Added "/NOANALYSIS" command line option. This permits you to load a packet file without PacketView Pro doing it's normal analysis on the file.


May 15, 2003 - Version 2.00.0004

Added "expert" mode (defaults to off). Use the command line option "/expert" to enable expert mode, or "/novice" to force novice mode.

When in "novice" mode, any action that needs to clear the packet buffer will cause a "Clear packet buffer? (Y/N)" prompt and the default system exclamation sound is played. If you decline, the current operation is aborted.

Moved "Continuous Capture to Disk" from F9 ("SAVE TO DISK") on packet screen to "F6 - Continuous Capture to Disk" on the "Main Menu".
