[RFE] arpwatch : Disabling promiscuous mode in arpwatch.
Last modified: 2016-01-26 07:49:16 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 .
