Hi,

Arch: i386
OS: FreeBSD 4.5-RELEASE
Snort 1.8.6
CMD: snort -i fxp1 -b -d -c /var/snort/conf/snort.conf -D

Error msg:

May 15 10:44:41 snort snort:  Restarting... 
May 15 10:44:41 snort snort: Received SIGHUP. Restarting
May 15 10:44:41 snort snort: WARNING: OpenPcap() device fxp1 network lookup:  
fxp1: no IPv4 address assigned 
May 15 10:44:41 snort snort: Initializing daemon mode 
May 15 10:44:41 snort snort: FATAL ERROR: ERROR: OpenPcap() device fxp1 open:  
(no devices found) /dev/bpf4: No such file or directory 

snort will die every 4 SIGHUPs as it runs out of bpf devices - which
it shouldn't do as it should be using bpf0 all the time (or rotating
round them).

Thanks
