           bpf_u_int32 *maskp, char *errbuf);

DESCRIPTION         top

       pcap_lookupnet() is used to determine the IPv4 network number and
       mask associated with the network device device.  Both netp and
       maskp are bpf_u_int32 pointers.

       pcap_lookupnet() returns 0 on success and PCAP_ERROR on failure.
       If PCAP_ERROR is returned, errbuf is filled in with an
       appropriate error message.  errbuf is assumed to be able to hold
       at least PCAP_ERRBUF_SIZE chars.
