I wrote SwsVpkt, a free virtual packet driver for Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3.
It's available here www.softsystem.co.uk/page7.html.  I believe Gisle has
tested it with Watt-32 and it's also extensively used by radio amateurs for
their JNOS project www.langelaar.net/projects/jnos2.  It also provides
significantly better performance than NDIS3PKT and is a lot less hassle and
overhead than WinPcap.

Shame Cygwin doesn't support gxx 4.x
