[Snort-users] snort on Linux works, on OpenBSD doesn\'t

I have just installed, from the same sources, snort on Linux and
OpenBSD. Both compile AOK, both appear to execute OK, the Linux snort
catches all the nimda stuff that continues to provide test data :-) and
the OpenBSD snort catches nothing. Both are connected to the same hub
(not switch), both interfaces show PROMISC mode and UP.

A key difference here is that the OpenBSD snort is running on an
interface that has no IP address - i.e. ifconfig rl0 up.

Any pointers on waking the OpenBSD version up would be appreciated.
