Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To load a display filter

  1. Open Network Monitor.

  2. If prompted, select the local network from which you want to capture data by default.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • On the File menu, click Open, and then double-click a saved capture file to open it.

    • On the Capture menu, click Start, and then click Stop and View when you are done capturing frames.

  4. On the Display menu, click Filter.

  5. Click Load.

  6. Specify the display filter file (.df), and then click OK.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure.

  • To start Network Monitor, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and double-click Network Monitor.

  • Network Monitor runs with reduced access in which administrative privileges have been removed. If you receive an Access Denied message when you follow this procedure, add your user name to the permissions list of the file or folder that you want to access. See Related Topics for more information about setting permissions on files and folders.

  • The new display filter decision tree appears in the Display Filter dialog box.

  • If you load a display filter, you will overwrite any unsaved changes to the current display filter.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
