Why don't you create a dependency that causes Snort to wait until
WinPCap 3.1 is up? If WinPCap is running as a service, note its name in
the Registry hive. Then check the hive for Snort. In there you can
manually add (with RegEdit) a dependency that causes Snort to wait until
WinPCap is started. I forgot the syntax (since I don't Windows anymore),
but check some service that you know have a dependency and it should be
clear what the syntax looks like.

Either that, or stick with WinPCap 3.0. Are there *really* any new
features you need to use?


It is said that the Internet is a public utility. As such, it is best
compared to a sewer. A big, fat pipe with a bunch of crap sloshing
against your ports.
