Creating an Omnipeek capture window
Creating an Omnipeek capture window lets you capture traffic locally from a variety of adapter sources. For example, you can create a new capture window by starting a capture from a supported network adapter, by replaying an existing capture file, by aggregating traffic from multiple wired or wireless sources, and by streaming packets from Aruba and Cisco access points. See Configuring adapter options for more information.
