how can I read data from an interface in promiscous mode? I'm only
interrested in listening to the communication beetween 2 host, using a
known port. Do I have to do all the filtering for myself or can I use
the services provided by the operating system ? (tcp/ip stack)

any pointers towards HOWTO'S wellcome.

thanks, Bert
