[Snort-users] Promiscuous Mode

I have seen the same thing on some of my machines.
The hardware is different, the software is not.
I suspect some networkcards to be the problem.
I changed the startup script:
daemon /usr/local/sbin/snort -t ......and so on......
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 promisc
Snort is quite happy with this workaround ;-)
