Using Virtual Ethernet Adapters in Promiscuous Mode on a Linux Host

Note

Très utile pour mettre une VM snort en bridge sur un linux ; il suffit de mettre les deux vmnet du bridge en promiscuous sur la machine hébergeant la VM

  1. # VMware software does not allow the virtual Ethernet adapter to go into promiscuous mode unless the user running the VMware software has permission to make that setting. This follows the standard Linux practice that only root can put a network interface into promiscuous mode.
  2. chgrp vmware/dev/vmnet0
  3. chmod g+rw /dev/vmnet0
  4. # N.B: Change vmnet0 with the bridged device
