-> Hello fellow snorters,
-> I am trying to use the flexresp in snort and I am getting this error:
-> FATAL ERROR: ERROR: cannot open raw socket for libnet, exiting...

Did you download a binary package? If so, scrap that out, and grab the snort source then recompile
with --with-flexresp. One more, you must install libnet first. Grab it from packetfactory.

Hope this helps...
