Thanks Erek. I installed the 2.3 version and it still doesn't work. Does
anyone know if this version works on a dual-processor box?

Sorry, not quite.

It's Winpcap that can't.  A change in the newer versions makes it not
work on SMP boxes.  Disable all but one to get it to work with that
version or dig up an old version.
