being as the last /8 ipv4 block has been assigned, I think it might be
time to make sure everything worked with ipv6, so we can fix it if it
I noticed on snort manual section 1.5.6, IPFW that it seems to indicate
that the ipfw module does not support ipv6. Is this something *BSD
needs to fix? or snort?
IPFW is available for BSD systems. It replaces the inline version
available in pre-2.9 versions built with this:
./configure --enable-ipfw / -DGIDS -DIPFW
This command line argument is no longer supported:
./snort -J <port#>
Instead, start Snort like this:
./snort --daq ipfw [--daq-var port=<port>]
<port> ::= 1..65535; default is 8000
* IPFW only supports ip4 traffic.
platform is freebsd 7.3, amd64, but I am not sure that affects the manual.
