Hey everybody-

I just wanted to inform you all that tonight I finally got to the root 
of a problem I have been having under Mac OS X 10.2.1. It turns out 
that if the Snort NIDS that is shipped with HenWen 1.2 is running, an 
Airport (802.11b) connection will not wake up properly from sleep. The 
only thing that will restore the connection is to (a) restart the 
computer or (b) stop the NIDS.

I have no idea why this is so, I have been using HenWen (and thus 
Snort) under Mac OS X 10.1.x for some time with no problem.

The problem here may be in the HenWen software rather than Snort 
itself, but I figured I would notify both the Snort community and the 
HenWen author Nick Zitzman (URL is http://dreamless.home.attbi.com/, 
e-mail is dreamless at ...1522...).
