I have a problem running Snort on OpenBSD 4.7 with a pppoe interface.
I contacted the maintainer of the port and he suggested I bring my problem
to this mailing list.
I am running Snort Version 126.96.36.199 (Build 38) on OpenBSD 4.7.
# uname -a
OpenBSD supai 4.7 GENERIC#558 i386
# pkg_info | fgrep -i snort
oinkmaster-2.0 update your Snort rules
snort-188.8.131.52-mysql highly flexible sniffer/NIDS
When I try to start snort on the external interface of my firewall I am
# snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i pppoe0 -v
Initializing Network Interface pppoe0
snort cannot handle data link type 51
I have made very little changes to the snort.conf so I do not believe
that is the problem.
I am using this ADSL card here: http://traverse.kd85.com/
