 Hey SGT b, You could use the arp command on a unix or linux box and pipe it through a few other commands and cut and paste the output into your snort.conf file.... This is a messy way of doing it:(assuming your arp -a output is the same as mine!)  unixbox#  arp -a | tail -5 | tr -s ' ' ' ' | cut -f2,4 -d' ' 00:01:03:63:83:2b192.168.1.2 00:04:25:df:cf:55192.168.1.3 00:06:23:dd:96:3f etc. hope that helps!

Is the arpspoof preprocessor the only thing that would trigger an alert based on an ARP packet?From snort.conf:"To make use of this preprocessor you must specify the IP and hardware address of hosts on the same layer 2 segment as you."Does this mean that in order for arpsoof to work, one has to statically map all IP-MAC pairs? Seems like a lot of work for little return. ;)Thanks!-------------------------------------------------------This SF.Net email is sponsored by: Oracle 10gGet certified on the hottest thing ever to hit the market...
