I have a fiber optic tap and two computers under widows/linux with fiber cards. The tap gives a copy of the network stream in two fibers, each connected to the input diber port of the tho computers.
On windows, the network receive packets and the fiber card is activated, with just une fiber from an active fiber network.
On linux, even in promiscuous mode, ifconfig shows me that the card isn't in running mode and dosen't receive any packets.
Any idea to force the network card in running mode? with irconfig or ethtool?
The fiber card is a "D-Link System Inc DL2000-based Gigabit Ethernet"
with ifconfig: eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:95:E4:61:CB inet adr:10.0.4.2 Bcast:10.0.4.255 Masque:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST PROMISC MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 lg file transmission:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b) Interruption:209 Adresse de base:0x9400
Thanks for help
