    Question promiscuous mode

    I am trying to figure out how to set my Network card to promiscuous mode.
    I am running Windows ME.

    Is that a techinical term 'promiscuous mode'?

    Does the network card support 'promiscuous mode'? And yes it is a technical term.

    Promiscuous mode is a state in which a network adapter card copies all the frames that pass over the network to a local buffer, regardless of the destination address. This mode enables Network Monitor to capture and display all network traffic.

    You will need a device driver to support P mode, there is libpcap for *nix and win32, not sure if there is a version available for ME yet.

    Application

    Are you just trying to set up your NIC in Promiscuous mode, or are you trying to get a sniffer to work? Just setting in up in promiscuous mode won't get you anywhere if you don't have software to interpret and capture the packets.

    Try NATAS if you want a lightweight easy sniffer for Win and the winpcap packet capturing driver if your nic supports it.

    I am going to code my own sniffer. I just need to know if there is a manual way to turn promiscuous mode on, or if I can code it in my program.
