[Snort-users] Snort and Win32

The problem is not with Snort; it's with WinPCap.  Specifically, all
versions of WinPCap after 2.02 disable themselves with they detect a SMP
platform (see http://winpcap.polito.it/misc/faq.htm#Q-15).  

I too had this problem on a dual-PIII, and I reverted to using Snort 1.8.6
and WinPCap 2.02.  Though WinPCap does not officially support SMP platforms,
at least this version of WinPCap does not disable itself.

Hello All,
I've installed snort 1.9 on a Windows 2000 Advanced Server box running
dual-PIII. I've also installed IDS Center. I went through the config
sections and set it up with no errors. When I click on the test button I
receive the following error: 
|> IDScenter test console <|
Initializing Output Plugins!
Log directory = E:\Snort\Log
Initializing Network Interface
ERROR: OpenPcap() device  open:
        Error opening adapter: Overlapped I/O operation is in progress.
Fatal Error, Quitting..
I installed the WinPcap latest version 3.04? (I think). Looking through
the archives, the best answer I found was that snort cannot run on
multiple processor machines. Is this correct? Any other thoughts?
