	The ABN-102, from portwell seems to be what you want, or something like it.
(Note, this isn't a recomendation, Iv'e never used them). 


	A pair of intel gige ports on a card, with a power off bypass.  

	There are other vendors with similar products: 

	Find one with (insert your os here) support, and you should be good, after a little
scripting and testing to make sure that the bypass is enabled whenever snort isn't running.
