hehe. well i'm having coffee now and this is a good time to start fixing
snort again.

i checked and my snort.conf is still the same. it has both HOME_NET and
EXTERNAL_NET defined in it using my networks ip address (for HOME_NET).
bugger i don't think snort would need to resolve hostname before it starts
does it?  i have firewalling in the same box and i can telnet, ping, lynx
everywhere from it so there's no question that the box can't resolve names.

well, i'll finish coffee first then d/l snort again.  hell maybe i'll use
1.8 then...l8rs
