Description Jan Synacek 2016-01-26 02:39:03 EST
Description of problem:

  This option is available in debian  :
   (Debian) The -p flag disables promiscuous  operation.   ARP  broadcasts
     get  through  hubs  without  having  the interface in promiscuous mode,
     while saving considerable resources that would be wasted on  processing
     gigabytes  of  non-broadcast  traffic.   OTOH, setting promiscuous mode
     does not mean getting 100% traffic that would concern arpwatch .
