promiscuous mode???

Postby KillerXtreme » Sat Jun 25, 2005 12:07 am

Me and a friend are trying to set up our computers to connect threw GIT to play some games.. But when he starts up GIt he gets the no promiscuous mode error thingy... Is there a way to bypass this? or fix it?

BTW how do you set GIT up anyways? ive never messed with this sort of thing before.. and how do you get it to connect threw UDP since beeing its fastest?

Promiscuous mode is how your network card can capture all the packets on the network. Without support for promiscuous mode from your network card and drivers, GIT cannot work. This is a limitation of the network card you have, and can only be solved by using a different network card. Sometimes upgrading the drivers for the NIC may help, but not usually.
