I need to write a little network analyzer in VC++/MFC, so I need to put
ethernet card in promiscuous mode, in linux it's simple: I use ioctl()
with IFF_PROMISC flag, but I don't know how to do that under VC++/NT4,
I'm using MFC CSocket and CAsyncSocket, but I've no problem to use
socket API.
Anyone can help me ?

Thanks.

You need to write a NDIS service driver that opens the ethernet card in promiscous mode. For the sample driver take a look at the DDK's "PACKET" sample.
