    Default New to the board

    Hi I've just arrived on the board.

    About me:

    -I like to pass my time in:
    * PHP / MySQL programming
    * Setting up hardware stuff

    -I'm also playing online games and especially Team Fortress 2.

    -I have a dualboot xp / linux (ubuntu : gnome desktop)

    -Hardware: dell vostro 1700, core duo centrino 2.22 Ghz, ge force 8M, Intel Pro Wireless, Broadcom Ethernet.

    I want to be a sysadmin.

    And I'm looking to network hacking and more particularly on wifi and packet sniffing.

    My questions: can we sniff a network other than its local network? I thought it might be considered a foreign network as a local network or I heard it also had to type attacks man in the middle or arp, but then I see it too.

    And finally, if my wifi card and ethernet are perfectly compatible with backtrack under kde? I can log in GUI but not command line, such as aircrack-ng on ubuntu does not do anything. : confused:

    Have a good day !

    You need sufficient access to a device thats connected locally to a network to sniff that network.

    Huh?
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.
