Fresh Install of Softether Server - Doesn't see Local Adapters NICs

Post by shaywood » Fri Apr 15, 2022 12:11 am

Hello, just installed Softether on a Windows 11 PC that has 4 Network adapters (2 Realtec NICs, Virtualbox VM adapter and a Wifi adapter). During installation Softether only shows Virtualbox as a local bridge option. Any idea why I can't see the NICs? I have reinstalled and rebooted. Other programs, like Virtualbox, can see all the network adapters.

Perhaps it is a SE-W11 compatibility issue? You could report it here https://github.com/SoftEtherVPN/SoftEtherVPN/issues

But first, can you see on the Ethernet NICs the following:

Code: Select all

(PS)> Get-NetAdapter | Select *
...
Status : Up
...
PromiscuousMode : True
(WiFi usually does not support Promiscuous Mode and can not be bridged)

Thank you. Both NIC's are "Up", but PromiscuousMode is "False" on 1 of them.

Can Wireshark "sniff" on the Realtecs in Promiscuous Mode?

Try the latest SoftEther nightly build. If still unresolved, report it at the above github link. Please update us here as it is a very interesting issue.

Added a broadcom nic, which Softether was able to see. Thanks for the help.
