Are you sure that you need these kind of loopback packets? In WinpkFilter context loopback packets are the packets indicated by NDIS layer to bound protocols in response of outgoing packet from one of the bound protocols. An example, TCP/IP sends a packet without NDIS_FLAGS_DONT_LOOPBACK. In this case packets does not only go out on the network media, but normally it is also indicated back to protocol layer as it would be received from the network. Some additional information on loopback packets you can find here http://www.ndis.com/ndis-ndis5/loopback/loopback.htm
