ok. im still getting use to this board. do you use the net-frame module on windows? if so where did you read the directions to build the module? when i look at the support table at the activestate ppm it says windows is not supported.

    I use Windows pretty much exclusively. I'm on Windows 7 x64 with Strawberry Perl 5.16.1.

    You're describing the very reason I moved away from Active State - the sometimes shoddy support for modules in their PPM process. Active State *may* now have a CPAN client and that's how I recommend installing Net::Frame.

    On Windows, with Strawberry, I just used:

    cpan Net::Frame cpan Net::Frame::Dump

    You'll also probably want many supporting modules to get some really good decodes:

    cpan Net::Frame::Simple cpan Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv4 cpan Net::Frame::Layer::IPv6 cpan Net::Frame::Layer::ICMPv6 cpan Net::Frame::Layer::LLC cpan Net::Frame::Layer::STP cpan Net::Frame::Layer::8021Q

    I don't believe any of these need a C compiler; however, you will need Net::Pcap installed and that does require a C compiler and some bug fixes to get installed on Windows. If you don't already have Net::Pcap installed, have a look at Re: On Yaks and the Shaving Thereof - finding exported symbols of a C library.
