Re: info on ip spoofing please

My question is How can you sniff packets on a link that your machine is NOT on ie NOT on the same subnet??

It's not the subnet that's important .. it's the broadcast network (usually a VLAN). ARP spoofing is the standard way of doing this, but ARP isn't (usually) forwarded across a router.

You can't (passively anyway) sniff packets from a host in another VLAN without some special trickery.
