Hopefully someone can shed some light on what I’m doing wrong .

It looks like we have got a spambot , somewhere on our home network. So I was pointed in the following

The problem I’m having is , I’m using my laptop to setup a bridged connection. I’ve used the wireless card and the Ethernet as a bridged connection, I’ve also used a usb Ethernet and the laptops Ethernet. To make the bridged connection.

Wireshark on the laptop is not is not seeing "telnet 25" from the testing laptop

So if I swap to the Wifi connection on my laptop and do a trace for port 25 , Wireshark shows that port 25 is active . So help would be grateful received Thanks Joe

A quick scan through the article finds it scares on details of networking this setup. I think the idea is to route all traffic through the wired Ethernet connection. That means that you should remove the association between the laptop and the wireless access-point, otherwise traffic can/will be routed through there.
