Promiscuous mode



  • Since I installed 1.0-Release I get lot of these messages, rl0 is my wan nic but what does it mean?

    kernel: rl0: promiscuous mode disabled
    kernel: rl0: promiscuous mode enabled

    kernel: rl0: discard oversize frame (ether type 800 flags 3 len 1532 > max 1514)



  • Packages like snort or darkstat need promiscuous mode to be able to sniff on an interface. Do you have any of these packages installed?



  • I did but removed them do u know howto fix this? cause it allso dissconnect my nic everytime.

    kernel: rl0: link state changed to UP
    kernel: rl0: link state changed to DOWN
    kernel: rl0: discard oversize frame (ether type 800 flags 3 len 1532 > max 1514)



  • I reinstalled pfsense and it works fine now.
