Installation Notes
During installation of the Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 software, the Setup
program will perform some different steps depending on the target
system’s operating system and existing configuration. The following notes
describe some common occurrences during Sniffer Portable 4.7.5
installations, as follows:
• Removing the QoS Packet Scheduler Service on page 1-7 (Windows XP and
Windows 2000)
• Removing the MAC Bridge Miniport Driver on page 1-10 (Windows XP)
Removing the QoS Packet Scheduler Service
To improve analyzer performance, Network Associates recommends that
the QoS Packet Scheduler service provided with Windows XP and
Windows 2000 be unbound from any adapters used with Sniffer Portable
4.7.5.
The QoS Packet Scheduler service supports the 802.1P traffic prioritization
system, allowing for the implementation of best-effort Quality of Service
by conforming 802.1P equipment. The service is optional on Windows
2000. However, on Windows XP, the service is automatically bound to
each installed adapter driver.
There are several ways to remove the QoS Packet Scheduler Service from
adapters to be used with Sniffer Portable 4.7.5:
• Uninstall the QoS Packet Scheduler service entirely during the
installation of the Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 software.
• Uninstall the QoS Packet Scheduler service entirely after the
installation of the Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 software.
• Unbind the QoS Packet Scheduler service from selected individual
adapters after the installation of the Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 software.
Each method is described below.
NOTE: Uninstalling the QoS Packet Scheduler service removes it from all
installed adapters. Unbinding from individual adapters allows you to
preserve the service for use with any non-Sniffer adapters.
Ë IMPORTANT: Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 can only check for the existence
of the QoS Packet Scheduler Service during installation. If you rebind

Installing Microsoft Tools
Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Virtual Machine are required to
run Sniffer Portable 4.7.5. To use the Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 dashboard and
capture panel, you must install Microsoft Virtual Machine. You can install
the latest version from www.microsoft.com/windows/ie.
Power Considerations for Sniffer Portable Laptops
Most laptop computers include power configuration options that let you
specify whether the computer should be allowed to go into a standby or
hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. For computers
actively running Sniffer Portable, these options should always be
disabled to preserve stable system performance!
For example, MS-Windows 98 SE, 2000, and XP laptop computers include
a Power Options Properties control panel. The Power Options Properties
control panel is accessed by starting the Display control panel (Start >
Settings > Control Panel > Display), clicking on the Screen Saver tab and
then clicking the Power button. In this example, the following settings
should be made for active Sniffer Portable operations:
• Power Schemes Tab
– Turn off hard disks = Never
– System standby = Never
• Hibernate Tab
– Enable hibernate support = Disabled
NOTE: Some laptop vendors include their own proprietary software to
perform power configuration tasks. In these cases, you may need to make
similar changes in the configuration menu provided by the vendor.
Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 and McAfee VirusScan
McAfee VirusScan Corporate 4.5.1 with Service Pack 1 is included with
turnkey versions of Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 (for example, versions of Sniffer
Portable 4.7.5 purchased along with the Dolch FlexPAC PC). The purchase
of a turnkey version of Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 entitles the user to one year of

McAfee VirusScan Settings for Sniffer Portable 4.7.5
Some of McAfee VirusScan’s normal default settings can potentially
interfere with Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 performance. In particular, scheduled
scans can interfere with Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 tasks. Because of this, the
version of McAfee VirusScan included with turnkey versions of Sniffer
Portable 4.7.5 is provided with most scheduled scan tasks disabled by
default. To scan the Sniffer Portable PC, start a scan manually, instead.
The exact changed settings are summarized below:
• The Enable System scan option in the Detection tab of the System
Scan Properties dialog box is disabled. Disabling this option also
disables all the other options in the tab.
• The Enable Internet download scanning option in the Detection tab
of the Download Scan Properties dialog box is disabled. Disabling this
option also disables all the other options in the tab.
• In the VirusScan Console, the scheduled tasks for Scan My Computer,
Scan Drive ‘C’, and Weekly Scan are all left unscheduled.
Downloading Sniffer Portable Upgrades from the
Web
After installing Sniffer Portable 4.7.5 from the Product CD, you can
download available upgrades from the Web. Before downloading
upgrades, you need your product Grant number and any applicable serial
