I am trying to play along, but I don't see why we are drinking!!

Post contains a "Stupid Management Tricks" story.

I didn't word that SNMP stuff correctly, it made sense when I typed it.

How many drinks if the post is OT?  For those of you that are confused.

SNMP has a very limited number of _commands_, and TCP Drop is not one.

Whoever wrote that probably intended to mean initiating some action to
tell a firewall box to drop the offending packet. That would make snort
omnicsient! Cool! Or, maybe its just HR!   ;)

Two more beers!
