I have written a small app to sniff packets. It uses the JPCAP lib. It functions properly, however, I am having trouble porting it to my android emulator. Has anyone tried using JPCAP with android?

If I figure it out I'll post it. It could just be the emulator does not have network interfaces and therefore blows-up. I am getting a htc incredible soon to experiment on.

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Couldn't load jpcap: findLibrary returned null.

Don't hijack someone else's question to ask one of your own.
