[Snort-users] Winpcap and cheap NICs...

I'm not really sure what you mean. This is a fresh install, so it wouldn't
be using the old name. Take a look at this:
database:   sensor name = MACHINENAME:\Device\Packet_NdisWanIp
database:     sensor id = 1
This is what is get when I start Snort on the new machine.
This is what I'm used to seeing on my other sensors:
database:   sensor name =
database:     sensor id = 2

Any thoughts?
Thanks once again!
