    hi ,
    see the attached drawing for network structure

    All systems running under VMware Workstation v6.5

    Two virtual Setup’s depicted as shown with the difference , one with VMnet1 virtual Switch and other with LAN Segment ( the one available when VM teams are configured ) . Wireshark has been installed on specific systems as shown.

    Now here’s the Question …
    When Xp-sp3-01 would communicate with Xp-sp3-02 ( suppose it pings the targeted system or open its default admin SMB shares ) ,would Xp-sp3-06 be able to able to capture all the traffic ( in the network traffic of WHICH it was not EVEN part of )

    In mine both Setup’s , I m able to get all the network data captured by Xp-sp3-06 inspite of the fact that IT WAS NOT INTENDED TO BE PART OF THAT TRAFFIC .

    See the attached Wireshark traces ( traced on Xp-sp3-06 ) .

    | Now is this really a Problem or this is how Wireshark operates |
    | Or this only Exists with Virtual VMware Networks |
    | Or this is Ethernet technology behavior |
    | Does this even happen with Physical networks with a single subnet |

    Thanks GAREN
    +1 mate :idea:

    finally , i was able to Implement No Promiscuous mode on VMware Guest OS.es Ethernet Card.s via VMX Configuration Parameter …. :google:
    ethernet0.noPromisc = “true”

    Source : http://sanbarrow.com/vmx.html

    But still the host Machine Virtual Ethernet Switch Adapter was able to sniff all the network traffic of the Guest OSes Linked to it ….. anyway to enable No P mode on Host Machine ( Windows ) Virtual Ethernet Switch Adapter …. :roll:

    First my name is not MOD.
    Second, post the text in the forum.
    Otherwise it isn’t searchable and will this become a useless topic for other members..
    Post only images when it contains a drawing but keep the text in the forum.
