A lot of Sun machines at work have SysKonnect gigabit interfaces. They 
work fine for normal use, but for some reason packet filters 
(snoop/tcpdump/etc) only capture outgoing (or is it incoming? only one 
direction anyway) traffic on the SysKonnect interfaces. This can be 
monstrously annoying when you're trying to troubleshoot something. The 
hme interfaces on the same boxes work like you would expect, so I guess 
it has to do with the SysKonnect drivers.

Has anyone else seen this? Am I missing some undocumented driver 
parameter or something?
