I can't get the win32 version of SNORT to capture packets not addressed
to system running SNORT.  Am capturing packets sent to both installed
NIC's and broadcast packets.

Using command line (below) to output to screen until running correctly.

snort -v -i 1

Thanks in advance!


Am trying to get snort running in a freestanding test/lab network using
4 dual bootable laptops interconnected with an 8 port hub.

SYSTEM: Gateway PIII 450

OS: Dual boot Redhat 7 and NT 4.0 service pack 5

NIC: Gateway internal ethernet card and a 10/100 LAN CardBus PC Card 

HUB: 8 port, not a switch.

SNORT: win32 version under NT.

Have generated network traffic using telnet and ping.  SNORT did not
capture packets without sniffer's ip.

Have review readme, faq and users mailing list.  Mailing list reflects
users with similar issues, but no fix yet.
