how is see if packets are recieved


Hi,

I think that on a nic whick is in promisc mode nothing is going in:

the output of ifconfig is:

eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:A0:24:F0:1D:5D
UP BROADCAST RUNNING PROMISC MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:3 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:2 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:3 carrier:3
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:98400 (96.0 Kb) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0x10c0

the RX byte is a fixed number.. isnt is soppused to get bigger all the time?

how can I know if traffic is coming in ?

thanks !!

Hi,

The problem is that eth1 does not seem to be configured: No IP address.... Maybe your NIC by a point to point connection, so to know if packets are received do ifconfig ppp0
