I understand that the 3c509 can be put into promiscuous mode.  How do I get this capability or make this change?

Question: I need a promiscuous mode driver to use Novell's LANalyzer. Where can I obtain such a driver?


Answer: The EtherLink III MLID (3C589.COM) supports promiscuous mode operation. However, the adapter will not report bad packets. The Parallel Tasking technology incorporated into the EtherLink III family of adapters increases network performance by discarding bad packets. If you must capture bad packets, it is recommended that an EtherLink III adapter not be used.


Due to an architecture change in the ODI standard, MLIDs dated later than October of 1994 require an extra shim to be loaded to enabler the "Receive Monitor Stack". This file can be downloaded from Novell's download sites and the file name is VLMUP4.EXE. The driver for promiscuous mode operation is called RXMONSTK.COM and it is included with VLMUP4.EXE. An example load order to enable promiscuous mode operation goes as follows:


LSL.COM
RXMONSTK.COM
3C589.COM
IPXODI.COM
VLM.EXE


The symptom that indicates the need for RXMONSTK is the application (such as LANalyzer) will load, but does not appear to be receiving any packets.
