Hi, I run my FBSD Box as a gateway for my internal network on ipf and ipnat. ( with rdr rules set as port forwarding ) After changing my NICs to Compaq NC3134, dual ports Intel 82559 Server NIC, I found that the NICs sometimes fell into promiscuous mode when I log into the console.
The system sometimes shows up fxp0 promiscuous mode enabled fxp0 promiscuous mode disabled fxp1 promiscuous mode enabled fxp1 promiscuous mode disabled .... in this way in between. I have a win2000 box in the internal network running edonkey with a lot of connection. The compaq server Nic is supposed to be very stable. I wonder if it was caused by too many concurrent connection on the Win2000 box causing this problem. My FBSD Box runs on FreeBSD 5.1 Release. I don't know if it is the driver issue. Does it have any side effect that the system keeps showing the messages ? Thanks!
