Re: cannot set ethernet card into promiscuous mode


thanks for the help. Indeed. I had not thought of that: The hub I was using was a built in hub into my Vigor 2600 DSL router.

After using a plain old hub I could see all my packets.

I am having trouble with two of my Debian boxes in that I cannot run e.g. ethereal on either of them (2.4.18-bf2.4 and 2.2.19pre17) in promiscuous mode. I need to sniff around in my net but am only able to see packets either originting from or detined to the Debians.

Are you on a switch or a hub? If it's a switched network you'll only be
able to see traffic to and from that machine. Some high-end switches can
mirror traffic from one or more ports to one port for monitoring.
