New to Ethereal

I have installed Ethereal and WinPCap on Windows 2000. I read the FAQ for Ethereal regarding why I'm only getting the packets from/to my machine and multicast/broadcast packets. It says that I have to setup my hardware to work with me. Can someone help me do this and help me figure out what all I need to be able to view the contents of a packet? Thanks, Jeremy

I presume that you're on a switched network. So you must enable port monitoring on the port that you are connected to and the port you want to analyze (e.g. the uplink port or VLAN).

Se page 10-21 in the Management and Configuration Manual for 2500
