I've installed a Mandrake 8.2 in my box and I concerned about an entry
that is appearing in /var/log/kernel/info file. The entry is saying
"device eth0 entered promiscuous mode".
I've not installed any kind of sniffer like ethereal or tcpdump. I've
checked all processes in my box and I've not found any that put the
interface in this state.
If I put ip show link, this is the result:
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,PROMISC,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast
link/ether 00:00:c0:87:4b:ac brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
Does anybody know what is happening ?
Thanks in advance.
