Linux Network in Promiscuous mode

To configure a network card to work in promiscuous mode you need to put the following in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1

BOOTPROTO=static
DEVICE=eth1
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
PROMISC=yes
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=no
HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx 

Change eth1 and the hardware address (HWADDR=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx) to reflect your system.
