First, a short description of what I need...
I need to write (or find) a driver that emulates a NIC. All data that would normally be on the wire would be sourced from/returned to user-mode code using the driver.
Is there any sample/example code that would be particularly helpful? Any other helpful direction in which I might go?
Then, a short explanation of why I need it...
I have a program that simulates an embedded microcontroller and its peripherals. (I didn't write this, it is provided by Microchip, the producer of the simulated chip). The simulator is user-extensible, and I'd like to add support for the microcontroller's embedded NIC, reflecting all input and output via the driver described above. This will effectively create a 2-node virtual network that will allow the PC to communicate with the simulated system just the way it would with a real device. For example, custom applications on the PC, or even a web browser, could interact with the simulated embedded system.
