<H3>SUMMARY</H3>
<UL>
	<STRONG>Note:</STRONG> This document is part of the libpcap Git and was derived from 'pcap.3' (circa Aug/07).
	<P>
	The ACN provides a customized/distributed version of this library that alows SMPs to
	interact with the various IOPs within the site providing a standard mechanism
	to capture LAN and WAN message traffic.
	<P>
	<CENTER>

				<TH VALIGN=TOP>SMP</TH>
				<TD VALIGN=TOP>The Supervisory Management Processor where Wireshark (or equivalent)
								runs in conjuction with a libpcap front-end.</TD>
			</TR>
			<TR>
				<TH VALIGN=TOP>IOP</TH>
				<TD VALIGN=TOP>I/O Processors where the monitored ports exist in conjunction
								with a custom device driver/libpcap back-end.</TD>
			</TR>
		</TABLE>
	</CENTER>
	<P>
	Each IOP will be capable of supporting multiple connections from an SMP
	enabling monitoring of more than one interface at a time, each through
	its own seperate connection.  The IOP is responsible to ensure and report
	an error if any attempt is made to monitor the same interface more than once.
	<P>
	There are three applications that will be supported by the ACN version of libpcap.
	They each use a slightly different mode for looping/capturing and termination
	as summarized in the following table:
	<P>
	<CENTER>
	<TABLE BORDER=1 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=3>
    	<TR><TH>Application</TH>	<TH>Capture</TH>	<TH>Termination</TH></TR>

			<TD VALIGN=TOP>pcap_dispatch(all packets in one buffer of capture only)</TD>

		</TR>
    	<TR><TH VALIGN=TOP NOWRAP>tshark</TH>
			<TD VALIGN=TOP>pcap_dispatch(one buffer of capture only)</TD>
			<TD VALIGN=TOP>Since a CTRL-C was used to terminate the application, pcap_breakloop() is never called.</TD>
		</TR>
    	<TR><TH VALIGN=TOP NOWRAP>tcpdump</TH>
			<TD VALIGN=TOP>pcap_loop(all packets in the next buffer, and loop forever)</TD>
			<TD VALIGN=TOP>pcap_breakloop()</TD>
		</TR>
	</TABLE>
	</CENTER>
	<P>
	<B>Note: </B>In all cases, the termination of capturing is always (apparently) followed by
	pcap_close().  Pcap_breakloop() is only used to stop/suspend looping/processing,
	and upon close interpretation of the function definitions, it is possible to resume
	capturing following a pcap_breakloop() without any re-initialization.

		The following list of functions is the sub-set of Pcap functions that have been
		altered/enhanced to support the ACN remote monitoring facility.  The remainder of the Pcap
		functions continue to perform their duties un-altered.  Libpcap only supports this
		mode of operation if it has been configured/compiled for SITA/ACN support.

<H3>Packet Trace Data Format</H3>
<UL>
	The format of the trace data that is sent to the SMP follows a portion of the libpcap file format
	and is summarized here.  This format specifies the generic requirements needed to
	be able to decode packets, but does not cover ACN specifics such as custom MAC addressing
	and WAN protocol support.
	<P>

	Although a libpcap file begins with a global header followed by zero or
	more records for each captured packet, trace data sent to the SMP does NOT begin with a global header.
	A trace sequence looks like this:

<H4>Packet Header</H4>
	<UL>
		Each captured packet starts with a header that contains the following values
		(in network neutral order):

		<FONT SIZE=-1>
		<PRE>
 uint32 tv_sec;  /* timestamp seconds */
 uint32 tv_usec; /* timestamp microseconds */
 uint32 caplen;  /* number of octets in the following packet */
 uint32 len;     /* original length of packet on the wire */
		</PRE>
		</FONT>

		<TABLE BORDER=1 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=3>
			<TR>
				<TD VALIGN=TOP>tv_sec</TD>
				<TD>The date and time when this packet was captured.
					This value is in seconds since January 1, 1970 00:00:00 GMT;
					this is also known as a UN*X time_t. You can use the ANSI C
					<em>time()</em> function from <em>time.h</em> to get this value,
					but you might use a more optimized way to get this timestamp value.
					If this timestamp isn't based on GMT (UTC), use <em>thiszone</em>
					from the global header for adjustments.</TD>
			</TR>
			<TR>
				<TD VALIGN=TOP>tv_usec</TD>
				<TD>The microseconds when this packet was captured, as an offset to <em>ts_sec</em>.
					<B>Beware: </B>this value must never reach 1 second (1,000,000),
					in this case <em>ts_sec</em> must be increased instead!</TD>
			</TR>
			<TR>
				<TD VALIGN=TOP>caplen</TD>
				<TD>The number of bytes actually provided in the capture record.
					This value should never become larger than <em>len</em> or the
					<em>snaplen</em> value specified during the capture.</TD>
			</TR>
			<TR>
				<TD VALIGN=TOP>len</TD>
				<TD>The length of the packet "on the wire" when it was captured.
					If <em>caplen</em> and <em>len</em> differ, the actually
					saved packet size was limited by the value of <em>snaplen</em> specified
					during one of the capture directives such as pcap_dispatch().</TD>

<H4>Packet Data</H4>
	<UL>
	The actual packet data will immediately follow the packet header as a sequence of <em>caplen</em> octets.
	Depending on the DLT encoding number assigned to the interface, the packet data will contain an additional
	custom header used to convey WAN port related information.
	</UL>

<H4>ACN Custom Packet Header</H4>
	<UL>
	PCAP, Wireshark and Tcpdump enhancements have been added to the ACN to support
	monitoring of its ports, however each of these facilities were focused on capturing
	and displaying traffic from LAN interfaces.  The SITA extentions to these facilities
	are used to also provide the ability to capture, filter, and display information from
	an ACN's WAN ports.
	<P>
	Although each packet follows the standard libpcap format, since there are
	two types of interfaces that can be monitored, the format of the data
	packet varies slightly.
	<P>
	<UL TYPE=DISC>
		<LI>For Ethernet (like) devices, the packet format is unchanged from the standard Pcap format.
		<LI>For WAN devices, the packet contains a 5 byte header that preceeds the actual captured data
			described by the following table:
