Hi all,

Running snort v1.6 in daemon mode 
snort -D -e -i eth0 -l /usr/local/snort/logs -c /usr/local/snort/rules/ids.rules.082900 -s -v -b

If I kill -HUP <pid> the snort process...

Sep 14 19:10:24 belgarion snort[96]: Received SIGHUP. Restarting
Sep 14 19:10:24 belgarion snort[96]: Restarting snort failed
Sep 14 19:10:24 belgarion kernel: device eth0 left promiscuous mode

Any ideas why the restart should fail ?

	- Simon
