    Default Does arpspoof kill the internet connection to the Host System in which BT5 runs

    Hi,
    Im running backtrack 5 inside vmware 9 and when i do a basic arpspoof attack , i lose the internet connectivity on my host operating system ( windows 7). I also lose the internet connectivity for BT5. Does this have something to do with the Vmware bridged adapter config or does it have something to do with the BT5 network config ?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Im having a similar problem,

    I've trying ARP spoofing with both arpspoof and ettercap on BT4.

    Im not getting any error messages;
    arp -a on target machine indicates that network has been spoofed currectly;
    tried with 2 different wireless cards on BT machine;
    getting a DOS on target machine, all webpages are timing out;

    does anyone have a lead on the problem?
    Thanks,

    I had smilar problem.
    Before you run arpspoof type: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
    After you done the setting you need to assign an IP address within the same subnet to your Backtrack machine
    e.g. ifconfig eth2 10.10.10.4 netmask 255.255.255.0
    For me it helps so good luck
