I have this hand tracking program that watches teh table i play on so i can check my stats. Supposing i found out the protocol and port that my poker software was using, could i then intercept all the data? If so how do i do it in windows? ace

So you're interested in reinventing the wheel for no good reason?

Ethereal is what you want. It's open source and does what you want exactly. Why spend MONTHS writing a replacement for it to get the same results?

Sorry, what exactly is Ethereal then. I have used a program called this in Linux that shows you in a more visual form the network data. Although what i want to do is write a program that keeps track of this so it can save the pokerhands i play to file.

As far as im aware Ethereal is just a viewer right?

I've never done anything like this before, however, I think you would probably want to use a library like this WinPCap. I've never used it, but I packet sniffer I used in the past did.
