Luca recently added the ability to perform packet filtering to pf_ring but we have not yet added support.  The transparent setting has to do with the way packets are delivered via options like pf_ring aware nic drivers not IPS vs IDS mode.  There is a detailed description of the various options on the pf_ring website.
