Errr.  Guess I was wrong on that one.

My only other idea was nstreams [1] but that doesn't look like it does what
you want, and I'm not sure about the mirror port.  If the "sensor" can't see
the traffic, it can't analyize it...

That's all I've got, sorry...

You used to have to reboot the Windows 9.x series every couple of days
because it would crash.  Now you have to reboot Windows 200x or XP every
couple of days because of a patch.  How is that better or more stable?
