Remote TCP dump adapter

Postby Decent » Thu Oct 29, 2009 7:32 am

Hi,
i installled the tcp remote dump adapter on my laptop.
I placed four linux-machines on the network with 2 or more ethernet nics.
I set one port for management, and the others to "sniff".

I configured remote adapters in OmniPeek. I used the root account to let OmniPeek contact the "Probes".

Now, when i start a new capture, omnipeek opens the capture windows, ask for the adapter, i put in a remote adapter(set promiscuous mode) and start the capture - nothing happens.
I opened the syslog on the linuxmachine, normally linux writes to the systemlog when a network adapter is set to promiscuous mode, or someone connects to the machine. But nothing happens.

But when i go to monitor and select an remote adapter there it connect to the linux machine.

What i'm doing wrong, that capture does not work with remote tcp adapter.

Kind regards
Andreas
