[Snort-users] Snort and Win32

Incidents,

I believe WinPcap 2.1 will allow you to run multiple processors, but with
that I also believe the latest version of Snort would be 1.8.6.

I was told by the WinPcap programmer that if anyone would furnish him with a
multiple processor machine that he would be more the willing to make the
later versions work with those.

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?

Regards,

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.

Cheers!
