  • Hi Suad,

    Network Monitor is purely a network monitor, it doesn't provide any capabilities to send packets back out on the wire.

    You could certainly use our API to inspect the incoming packet and parse it before you modify it, but to take your modified bits and send them you'd have to investigate using some other framework.
