Using Omnipeek with Capture Engines
If you are using Omnipeek as a console for distributed Capture Engines, you will need to connect to the Capture Engines from the Capture Engines window in Omnipeek. (If you are using Omnipeek as a portable network analyzer only, and not as a console for distributed Capture Engines, you do not need to review this section.)
Capture Engines let you capture and analyze data at any location across the network. Capture Engines perform real-time network analysis from the Omnipeek console on traffic from one or more network interfaces, including Ethernet, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wireless, 1 Gigabit, and 10 Gigabit.
The Capture Engines window in Omnipeek lets you view and interact with Capture Engines, which have no user interface of their own.
