Did you install Winpcap? What version did you install? I had problems with
version 3.1 and had the same problem as you have mentioned. I downgraded to
version 3.0 and all works great.

Hope this helps.

Hi Guys

I have come to use Snort for the first time and I can't get it to work. I am

using XP SP2 and I have downloaded the binary from: 

I have have kept all the default settings and when I run snort -v, I get:

        --== Initializing Snort ==--

Initializing Network Interface 

Then I get a windows error saying "Snort has encountered a problem and needs

to close"

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance
