The default.nam file provides a starting configuration for the Name Table, and includes a current list of the Vendor ID portion of MAC addresses. This allows you to substitute the name of the card manufacturer for the first three bytes of any physical address.
Analysis modules
The 1033/PluginRes directory contains files used by Analysis Modules that enhance the program’s analyzing capabilities. For a complete description of the Analysis Modules available with the program, see Analysis Modules.
Reports
The 1033/Reports directory contains XML, XSL, and HTML templates, along with related support files, for use with the Save Report functions and with options available in the Statistics Output views of the Capture Options dialog. See Generating statistics output reports for more details.
Utilities
The Bin directory contains helpful utilities, such as the two command line utilities included with Omnipeek. PeekCat concatenates smaller capture files into a larger one. PeekSplit creates smaller capture files out of a larger one.
Compass
The Compass directory contains the Compass dashboard Flash UI and support files.
Packet decoders
The Decodes directory contains the modules used to decode packets. These modules provide Omnipeek with the instructions it needs to display packet contents, based on the types of protocols used.
Drivers
The Drivers directory contains the Omnipeek drivers for supported adapters and operating systems, along with their installation instructions.
MIBs
The MIBs directory contains the MIB file that supports the SNMP Trap action in notifications. For an overview of the notifications functions in Omnipeek, see Sending Notifications.

The Plugins directory contains the DLL files for the Analysis Modules.
Samples
The Samples directory contains a variety of sample capture files and an associated name table file. You can use these files for testing, training, and to familiarize yourself with program functions. See the Readme file in that directory for more details.
Application Data
Application data, such as names, filters, log files, and so forth, is cached in the Application Data folder. The default location of the Application Data folder is in a directory in the root drive where the operating system is installed (typically C:\) with the path name: Documents and Settings\(user name)\Application Data.
 
Omnipeek creates a subdirectory structure within these locations to cache application data. That subdirectory structure is: LiveAction\Omnipeek. For example, the application data for the Administrator of a Windows 7 64-bit system would be cached in: C:\Users\tsadmin\AppData\Roaming\LiveAction\Omnipeek.
GPS
The LiveAction GPS Daemon is the interface between itself and your GPS receiver and is typically installed by default at C:\Program Files\Common Files\LiveAction\GPS\gpsdaemon.exe.
