    arp poisoning question

    Question about arp poisoning. I got it to work on my notebook and my pc using cain. So i tried entering manually the mac address of my router on my notebook, then poison it. Well it works, but in cain it says half-routing, instead of full-routing. What is half-routing? Another thing, on my notebook, it still shows the manual mac address entered and not the other one, why does it still work? I'm running XP, and Ubuntu on the notebook.

    A status of "Full-routing" means that the attack is fully functional and you truly are the Man In the Middle, while a status of "Half-routing" implies that you're only a Man In the Middle for traffic flowing in one direction, not both directions.

    Did you use a static entry in the arp table? Eventually the entry will expire if you did not use a static entry.

    PS
    Based on your post, you don't understand networking and stand to do quite a bit of damage if not to your own, to someone elses network. I wouldn't play with cain unless you fully understand what you're doing.

    Yeah, i put in a static entry in my arp table, so the attack shouldn't work, right? But it still does, why? Well i get half-routing

    Ok, I think i know why. It cant change the static arp entry at the computer, but it will change the one at the router end, so everything coming in is sent to the pc acting as the router, then to my end notebook. Right?

    It works because you've made the static arp entry.

    The issue is that you're not routing traffic you're capturing, thus, you're getting the half-routing message. Again, I would stop and understand what you're doing before you really break something.
