I've heard some comments in this newsgroup about eth0 going into promiscuous
mode. How do you disable an Ethernet card from entering promiscuous mode
at boot time? The [MAN] page for "ifconfig" tells you how to manually
turn this feature off, but does anyone know how to permanently disable this
I do not recall ever turning this feature on when configuring my card. Some
people in this newsgroup believe that this is a sign of being "Hacked".
I'm not sure if this is the case, or I enabled it accidentally when
configuring my network. Is anyone else having a problem with promiscuous
