Internal network -> Firewall -> *Hub -> Router -> Internet
*one way cable location
This particular hub will only have 3 or 4 network connections at any given
time: the firewall, the router, the snort sensor port, and a different
sniff-type analyzer. I guess my perception is that if the one way cable is
rebroadcasting all the packets back into the hub, does that double the
traffic and/or greatly magnify any network troubles on that hub?
