How can I disable my LAN connection?
Been using Backtrack 2 Live CD for 2 days now. Never have I tried any kind of Linux distribution, its all alien to me
In Windows, if you go to Control Panel- Network Connections- My Connection: Right click, select "Disable" and it will disable my LAN connection.
How is it that I can do the same in Backtrack 2 using the Live CD?
I did do a search and came up with "ifconfig eth0 down" but not sure if that is the right command.
just unload the driver module for your network card. Normally its called e100 or if thats not it do a "lsmod' to see which modules are loaded and then unload the one which matches your nic card.
so try "rmmod e100"
coulld also be eth1 but normally it is eth0 if you only have one ethernet interface. also you could just unplug the cable coming out of the NIC.
