Cain and Abel - promiscous mode detection

  1. I tried using the promiscuous scanner to find out if the network adapter is in promiscuous mode. Ironically, the application requires the sniffer to be activated for the promiscuous scanner to work. Wouldn't this make the whole scan pointless as now the network adapter has enter promiscuous mode anyway. So it is useless.

    If I see * asterisks signs, under the 31 bit group does that mean it is in promiscuous mode?

    Any information about this would be appreciated.
