Why is there still trafic through the VMware Network Adapter when it's shut off?
I see trafic through the adapter using Wireshark, why is that? And can i stop the trafic until i turn the vmware on?
Wireshark puts network adapters into promiscuos mode - which again has its own side effects.
Are you sure you detect real traffic or just artefacts of the monitoring ?
Also how exactly do you shut the VMware network adapters off ? - which mode do they use ? - bridged or hostonly or guestonly ?
