[Honeywall] Roo 1.2 connections and events (compared to 1.1)

    If you log onto your 1.2 honeywall, and run the following command:

ps ax | grep host

You will probably notice that by default, all data capture mechanisms
are now using a bpf filter.  This filter is based on the contents of
the HwHPOT_PUBLIC_IP variable.  It should only be capturing things to
and from the ip addresses there.  It also incorporates the black and
white list if they are enabled.

Can you paste the results of the ps ax | grep host command above?

In your 1.1 honeywall, were the events related to your honeypots or
simply machines that were on the same local subnet?

Thanks in advance,
