I'm running VMplayer 3 on a Windows XP SP3 host. The appliance I'd like to run is a sniffer application and this requires that the sniffing interface be placed in promiscuous mode. I've been searching for tips on how to do this, but most of the pages I can find refer to network utilities that don't exist in the distribution I've installed. Anybody have clues on how to do this?
On Windows hosts you always use promiscous mode - it should already work.
Keep in mind - the so called virtual switches are actually virtual hubs
