This is very interesting. I use a netgear switch for my wan and lan. When
someone surfs a porn site in my house, I see it come up on ACID. I do not
get the url, I just get the IP address. Snort is set on eth0 which is the
DMZ port on my router. I see all traffic that comes through my switch and
router. Maybe I am not understanding the difference and why snort would care
or not see activity on a switched network if it was set that way.
