prom. mode is only active while a program such as snoop is active. It
defaults to being disabled.

Sure enough I had a tcpdump that had been running in the background.
The minute it was killed hme stopped running in promiscuous.

Does anyone know how to disable promiscuous mode. I've tried, this
   list's archive and sun solve. I think the answer may be in ndd, but I did
   not find it. Ifconfig isn't it, but it is for most other *inxs.
