Further more for privacy and security reasons the probes should in my mind gather as little information about the directly attached network as possible. /Jesper "Wilfried Woeber, UniVie/ACOnet" <Woeber at CC.UniVie.ac.at> wrote: >Xmas WishList 2011 :-) > >Looking at the yellow LED of the probes, I presume that their Ethernet IF >operates in promiscuous mode.
