    Does eth0 refers to your ethernet interface?
    You can also post your iwconfig output.
    vmware/flash boot
    eth0 is my interface
    and i no longer have the configuration for that network and my flash drive busted, so going to have to wait on getting another one.

    You shouldn't select all clients, that's a mistake.
    Snayler is correct here, a friend of mine was playing around with ettercap at university and accidently took on a whole university subnet of approx 150 hosts and caused a DOS attack against a switch

    -editing the etter.conf file is essential as it tells ettercap what html tags to look for when sniffing the network
    -also setting up iptables appropriately sometimes will solve some issues
    /usr/local/etc/etter.conf [uncomment the iptables]
    echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward [enter this into shell]

    A great tutorial on ettercap can be found at

    1. understand this as well, running ettercap with sslstrip causes a slowdown on the network. Because all the packets have to go through you and be forwarded to the gateway while being inspected. Most laptops were never meant to be routers!
    2. Make your life easier, when you first open up ettercap gtk make sure you set the net mask, then it won't go and search all 1024 or so addresses for clients to add. For the most part setting the mask to is plenty, it will search the last 8 bits of the network address or 255 possible clients. Most laptops were never meant to be routers!
    3. One last thing, if you are running sslstrip make sure you have post 10000 clear on your computer and have these lines
    echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --destination-port 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 10000
    sslstrip -k -f -l 10000
    also be sure not to open any web pages with your computer while doing this sometimes it makes for conflicts and really lags things.
