    Exclamation netdiscover not working under Kali 2019.4

    Installed 2019.4 in VMWare (from .iso) and netdiscover command produces no results.

    netdiscover -r -i eth0

    Currently scanning: Finished! | Screen View: Unique Hosts

    0 Captured ARP Req/Rep packets, from 0 hosts. Total size: 0

    Checked with previous version of kali and verified ability to use netdiscover and find clients/MACs on same LAN.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Lightbulb netdiscover issues resolved

    After doing some research and testing on this problem, it appears that the issue is in libpcap. Kali Rolling is installs libpcap0.8 (1.9.1-2) which is currently marked testing. I decided to use libpcap0.8 (1.8.1-6) which is stable. Installed using:

    dpkg -i libpcap0.8_1.8.1-6_amd64.deb
    netdiscover is now functional (note: I have not verified the impact of this on other installed tools/packages). Hopefully this will fix other issues folks are having with tools that rely on libpcap.

    You can obtain the 1.8.1-6 version of libpcap here: libpcap0.8_1.8.1-6_amd64.deb

    With the latest libpcap in Kali Linux this now works. (v 1.9.1-4)
