How do I set Promiscuous mode on an NC3123

I'm loading a internet monitoring software package which requires the NIC be set to promicuous mode. I've downloaded the most recent driver. Some software package for Windows 2003 server. I'm not sure where to find the setting I need to change.

Tom,
You shouldn't have to manually enable Promiscous mode on the NC3123. The application should make the call to the OS and the OS sets the promiscuous mode bit on the NC3123.

Are you having a specific problem when you try to sniff?

Also, to make sure the NC3123 is working, you can use Netmon to test promiscuous mode. Note: Only the SMS version of Netmon supports promiscuous mode - not Netmon lite.

Regards,
