  • Yes, I have done that. I can’t find the option. – Shuzheng Jun 8 '18 at 7:37
  • From the description “—silent” don’t seem fit. – Shuzheng Jun 8 '18 at 7:37

In curses mode, ettercap -C, use Menu > "Unified sniffing" first. Then Menu > Hosts > "Scan for hosts"

In Text mode, ettercap -T, you can use the -n, --netmask <NETMASK> option for the network mask.
