devn-sis9.so in Promiscious mode

Post by Bill Caroselli » Mon Jan 05, 2004 1:06 pm

Is there an option to put the devn-sis9.so driver in promiscious mode?

I have system where this is embedded on the mother board. It works
well but I want to use that system for sniffing ethernet problems.
The tcpdump program does not see any packets that aren't broadcast or
are the intended recipient of the packet.

Is anybody out there?

Can someone at least say No?

Better yet, say yes and tell me how.

Is your network cable plugged into a switch or a hub. If a switch, it
will filter all point - point packets that are not addressed to you.

Yes, I am aware. It is on a small network with a cheap dumb hub.

There seems to be an option 'promiscuous' in the binary. Try the
option promiscuous=1 in your setup.

Thanks. I'll try this.

Bill,
I had an issue with the devn-sis9 driver early last year -- the mac
address was not being accessed correctly. It also did not set up the
speeds ! nicinfo showed all sorts of problems

The version I downloaded from qdn.qnx.com in late April 2003 was

59754 /lib/dll/devn-sis9.so

$ md5sum /lib/dll/devn-sis9.so
c368f966ea59f9b3d9927ee0c8774e16 /lib/dll/devn-sis9.so
$ cksum /lib/dll/devn-sis9.so
1517447458 59754 /lib/dll/devn-sis9.so

Of course, I can no longer find this on the QNX website.

My devn-sis9 essentially works fine.
I just can't get it into promiscuous mode.

Someone made a suggestion yesterday. I have not had a chance to try
that yet. The computer in question is in another building.
