Greetings and Salutations;
Is it possible to access an Ethernet port in Debian WITHOUT it being configured?
I would like a device that has two ports with no IPs and acts as a SWITCH, but with logic to examine and act on packets as they come through.
From the research I've done, this is not possible without developing custom device driver and/or possibly changing part of kernel.
Just looking for some confirmation either way from people that know. :-)
