switching to promiscuous mode?

Post by Marc MERL » Tue, 01 Oct 1996 04:00:00



Sniffit and TCPdump switch to promiscuous mode just fine.
However, I'd like to switch to promiscuous mode just to be able to use
accounting on an ethernet network.

How can I switch to promiscuous mode?

Thanks,
Marc

ifconfig ethX promisc will usually do the trick :-)

Damn, you're right, it's not in the man page, but I should have tried that:
magic:/home/root# strings /sbin/ifconfig | grep promisc
promisc
-promisc

Thanks a lot,

1. eepro100/2.2.19: failure when switching to promiscuous mode

Hi

Kernel 2.2.19, SMP, PIII-800

I've been seeing the eepro100 ethernet driver stop working when VMWare
puts it in promiscuous mode.  /var/log/messages looks like this:

Sep 18 08:35:18 gna kernel: bridge-eth0: set IFF_PROMISC
