Pcapif uses pcap to implement a netif that is hooked to the real network like on a switch. Although in the win32 folder, pcapif.c should be platform independent and thus work on Unix/Linux too. (Pcapif helper OTOH relies on win32 functions to provide what pcap doesn't).

I thought using libpcap could be more simple to use than tapif, mainly because it doesn't require any external setup other than having libpcap installed.

This isn't a usage case, this is how it works, I already know that :p

So, you are using it for example to replay pcap files ?
