This is perfectly normal and will appear on the UNIX version of honeyd-0.5
as well.

No. The readme states: !!! NOTE: Honeyd-win32 has ONLY been test with
WinPCAP Version 3.0 Beta. Other versions may or may not work. !!!

I.E. You should ONLY use WinPCAP Version 3.x which is currently beta.

All the options for the honeyd-win32 are exactly the same as its UNIX
counterpart. Contained in the zip file is a file named honeyd.html.Read that
HTML file and it should help you with the options etc you can run honeyd
