HenWen 1.1.1 is out and available on my Web page below.

Or, a direct download URL: 

The MD5 checksum on this release is 
$B1D6E4655FB3765B75BF9385AE6090BF. Make sure that you use either 
Hdiutil or Disk Copy to verify the checksum. It won't verify 
correctly in OpenSSL or other tools.

For those of you who missed my previous announcements: HenWen is 
a GUI for the Snort network intrusion detection system. HenWen's 
goal is to make it easy to set up and run Snort. HenWen requires 
Mac OS X 10.0 or greater for non-PPP connections and 10.1.4 or 
greater for PPP connections. It should run fine on OS X Server.

This update mainly brings HenWen up to date with recent changes 
to the Snort rules. In addition, the problem with the 
snort-log-rotate script sometimes not resetting Snort when it 
should was fixed, you can now turn off promiscuous packet 
sniffing, and a few other bugs were fixed. The LetterStick 
application is greatly improved now; when an error is logged, 
LetterStick gives you IP addresses, and ports if it wasn't an 
ICMP attack.
