    Means it is not in promiscious mode which is most commonly used to sniff packets.

    Normally, a NIC will only process packets that were headed for it. For example, if you're using a hub (instead of a switch) to connect your computers, all packets will be sent to all computers, but the NIC will discard all packages that weren't intended for it. Putting it into promiscuous mode means that it will receive all packages, so that you can monitor packets that were sent between other computers in your network.

    ifconfig <device> promisc

    Normally you dont need to turn enable it as most apps that require promiscuous mode will enable it for you, like tcpdump for example.

    Use the command tcpdump to see all packets that "goes throw" you NIC...in hubbed environments you can for example see username and password in cleartext on hosts that have FTP-servers...can be fun..
