I am running into problems getting my Ethernet adapter in backtrack to
run in promiscuous mode.
Currently running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as the host OS with VM Player 4.02
installed. I setup Backtrack 5R2 as a Virtual Machine in player and all
is working great, however i cannot figure out how to get the Ethernet
adapter in promiscuous mode.
I've edited the Virtual Machines config file (in this case
"/home/%user%/vmware/backtrack.vmx") to include the following line:
ethernet0.noPromisc = “FALSE”
I thought this would do the trick but perhaps i am missing something.
I'm using wireshark for testing purposes and so far from within the
guest OS all i can see is traffic to and from the guest OS...
Thanks , Tim
