I've done a little digging and from what I can see this appears to be a
WinPcap problem, I tried windump -D and I get the same error, so it's not
snort specific.  Also one thing I didn't mention previously was that my
snort -W shows what I think is nothing.  There are 4 nics in my machine and
all I see is this:
C:\Snort>snort -W
-*> Snort! <*-

For some reason I think this interface 1 is a loopback.
Hope this info is of some use.

Subject: [Snort-users] WinPcap 2.3 and Win2k
I'm setting up a new install of Snort on Win2k and I'm getting the "ERROR:
OpenPcap( ) device open: Error opening adapter: Overlapped I/O operation is
in progress.  Fatal Error, Quitting.."
The FAQ says this can be due to an old incompatible, or uninstalled version
of WinPcap.  I'm using 2.3 and the install appears to be running
successfully. Is there any way I can check to make sure it is, or is this
already a known issue?
