Re: Ethernet with no IP address

You should be able to do that with ebtables, though it might have some limitations.

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.  :-)
