Problem getting libpcap and snort to work. Problem getting tcpdump and
libpcap to work. Running on HP-UX 11.x
The problem seems to be related to the /dev/dlpi interface used by HP-UX
Using the depot files from http://hpux.cs.utah.edu/
I get an error message when trying to initialize snort.
Initializing Network Interface...
ERROR: OpenPcap() device lan5 open:
stat: /dev/lan5: No such file or directory.
I am trying to use snort with libpcap and libpcap isn't able to attach to
the LAN interface. With HP-UX 11 the
use of /dev/lan? has been replaced by /dev/dlpi. This change is also
indicated in the libpcap README file in
the latest source release of libpcap.
Is there a way for me to get libpcap to attach to a specific interface card
that uses /dev/dlpi? When I try to
use /dev/dlpi as the interface name it complains "can't find PPA for
/dev/lan5". Lan 5 is the primary interface
card on my system.
Is there a way for me to tell snort to attach to /dev/dlpi and if so, how?
I get an error message when trying to initialize tcpdump.
tcpdump: stat: /dev/lan5: No such file or directory
How do I tell tcpdump to use /dev/dlpi for the lan5 interface?
