ifconfig fails to report promisc mode.  This more probably is a linux
kernel thingy as far as I can tell, because ifstatus also will not
show promisc mode.

Sorry for the lack of information, but i'm kinda bogged down :)

To test:
/usr/sbin/tcpdump -n -w blah &

ifconfig -a

no PROMISC flag shows.

This is a tcpdump bugture/featlet. Changing component.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-11 14:40:56 EDT
Fixed (by updating tcpdump man page) in tcpdump-3.4-22.
