last week I had the phenomenon that snort died and as I tried to restart
him it always came up properly but didn't detect anything. After doing some
diagnosis on snort I discovered that when snort was not running the nic was
in promiscious mode and when snort came up the card switched over to
"normal mode" leaving the promiscious state.
Is it possible that there's a little check needed in snort to proove wether
the promiscious mode on the sensor nic is already enabled or not ?
