    I have installed BackTrack linux on my Parallels.
    Im using a macbook air mid 12.
    i set the networking device in the parallels to bridged, so i have both my mac & internal IP as in my mac.
    once i start using arpspoof in parallels, internet connectivity is lost in my mac.
    in linux it remains..i can ping google or whatever.
    anyone knows a solution?

    Did you install the Parallels software drivers in Linux? Are they even available for that distro?

    Hi,
    arpspoof is a sniffer packege and if not use correctly will block all the traffic.
    Give it the right command and I think you can solve the problem :)

    i do, and it works as it should
    i do arpspoof -i eth0 -t target router
    where eth0 is the correct card, target is 192.168.178.99 which is my test computer and router is the correct ip too , 192.168.178.1
    if doing arp -na on the target computer, it shows my mac address for both my ip & gateway ip
    so why it screws up my internet? :(
