[Snort-users] Packet Loss on a NIC without TCP/IP bound

I run RH 7.1 using snort on a NIC without an IP address bound to it, and it
works fine.

Just make sure the interface is enabled/up'd (I think this is the ifup

Hope this helps.

I assume that this problem is because there is not an IP address bound to 
the NIC, but when I run Snort-1.8.1 on RH 7.1 Linux, kernel 2.4.13, on a NIC

without an IP address, it show 100% packet loss.  Are my assumptions right?
