DPDK is just a high speed packet I/O system on top of normal NICs in most cases.

DPDK can receive any packet that is on the wire if you enable promiscuous mode for that port. If you do not have promiscuous mode enabled then the destination MAC address in the L3 header must match the NIC’s MAC address.
