I have the Knoppix std cd, but i can't get any of the tools to read any packets. The computer is plugged into a port to which all ports are mirrored to, and I can sniff packets easily from the Windows based Ethereal, but can't get anything using Ethereal, dsniff, or etherape on the Knoppix.
Can somebody help me out. The only thing I know to do is boot it up to the CD, right click, go to sniffers and choose ethereal. I did try opening up a Sniffer Shell, and going in like that, but it didn't work either. I have tried this on both a Dell OptiPlex and an IBM Thinkpad.
