This is the normal w2k crap.

If other packet capture programs work. Do the following:
1) Remove the winpcap driver via the network applet in the control
Panel.
2) Reboot.
3) Open regedit and delete
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Packet key.
4) Reboot.
5) Reinstall winpcap drivers.

Hope that helps,

Here s the message I get when lauching snort :

        --== Initializing Snort ==--

Initializing Network Interface
\Device\Packet_{1C0B2699-360C-4C7A-AEEF-6669C063D
016}
ERROR: OpenPcap() device
\Device\Packet_{1C0B2699-360C-4C7A-AEEF-6669C063D016} o
pen:
        Error opening adapter

Though the windows 2000 seems to work fine with the packet capture
driver installed.

Is there a complete help for W2k-snort somewhere on the web ?

Thanks for your help !

Christophe
