ifconfig ex0 says it is in PROMISC but still tcpdump only
dumps broadcasts and traffic addressed to my IP address.
I have re-compiled kernel with pseudo-device bpfilter
before I shipped the machine to its new location and a quick
(too quick) test. Now I notice that I can't see traffic.
FreeBSD 2.2.7 with Intel EtherExpress Pro/10+
Could this be related to the bug report about if_ex.c not
recognising the "+" card?
It's a remote machine (250 km away) so unless I knew for sure that
a new driver will fix my problem I'm reluctant to recompile
the kernel as I cannot boot -cv and I know that there will be
conflicts. I will try to eliminate all conflicts by pruning
the kernel config but....
All help welcome, I'm trying to fix a network problem on a
remote ethernet and need to get tcpdump working first.
