dsniff woes ...
After a long time playing around with the various package versions required by dsniff, I managed to get a compiled version that actually worked. Apon doing so I set about testing it by trying to sniff traffic flowing between my Windoze box and my FreeBSD gateway using my lappy (slack 8.1)
I run a switched network, but I thought I could get around this by arpspoofing the Windoze box into thinking that my lappy had the gateways mac addy (and then forwarding the packets using fragrouter) now, this did (kinda) work, I can see traffic from the Windoze box flowing over the wire and onto the gateway using tcpdump, but neither dsniff or its tools (urlsnarf etc.) actually manage to pick anything up (apart from info comming straight from the laptop)
could this problem have something to do with the packages that dsniff depends apon ? (I only say because the main dsniff program often crashes with a segmentation fault)
any help would be great !
