I need to know how Tuxcut works. I am using it to cut the IP address of other computers in my subnet (Local Area Network) in college.
I have searched but haven't found anything. Any suggestions?
The IP which you pass as argument to tuxcut, is sent a packet telling him that its gateway's MAC address is your MAC address. Hence, that IP sends all the packets to you and if you don't forward it to the actual gateway, they're silently dropped.
E.g. If there are two PCs in a subnet, whose IP addresses are
Suppose that the PC with IP
As you know, every PC before sending a packet asks for the MAC address of the gateway if it is not available on its cache. So when the PC with IP
P.S.: You can check this by using Wireshark while using Tuxcut.
