Hello, for any body to help.
on my case, I have a PC connected by Ethernet cable to my router (a WLRFS 4g one) and my switch via wireless.
When setup everything following the instruction on OP nothing works, the check on step 4 of http://www.lan-play.com/install-switch
, for me only shows:
So my switch did never get connected, thinking was my windows installation or something wrong with PCAP I did boot on a DEBIAN Linux on my computer and repeat all the PC side installation, but works neither.
Then hit me: all the Lan-Play is based on PCAP protocol which is a sniffer, and so many routers do not allow sniff between interfaces nor VLANs, so I did install a USB Wireless adapter on my PC and disable the Ethernet interface, restart the LAN-Play and voila! all starts working just fine.
Reboot to Windows and setup the Wireless Interface, selected that interface on the command line of
parameter and everything work like a charm.
Also on my windows 10 I did prefer to install NCap (https://nmap.org/npcap/
) instead of WinPCap because it have windows 10 support, you need to be sure of select the next options on the second installation wizard dialog:
The WinPcap API-compatible Mode is essential for Lan-Play.
If you internet router doesn't allow sniffing between interfaces like mine and your PC like me isn't wireless connected you should consider using a wireless connection on PC if you have troubles.
