[Honeywall] Snort rules

Hmm, that's exactly what I did, I commented out the TFTP Get rule in
tftp.rules and restarted the Honeywall.  Maybe the problem isn't coming
from snort_inline then, but somewhere else.  I don't mind the lack of a
GUI interface to snort rules... I just wanted to make sure I was editing
the right files.

I notice that Walleye is still picking up on the TFTP Get, but I think
this is due to the regular snort IDS.

Can you anyone think of any other reason the TFTP opcode would being
sent as 0x1201 instead of 0x0001 from behind my Honeywall ?

We gave up on creating "yet another snortrule interface" a while 
back to dedicate devel resources in what we considered at the time 
to be more important areas.  For clarity, this is not a "jab" just 
a general explanation of what happened...

either remove tftp.rules from /etc/snort_inline/snort_inline.conf 
poke around in /etc/snort_inline/rules/tftp.rules 
until you find the "offending" rule and comment it by prepending 
the line with a "#" (alal bash comment)

Need to restart snort-inline after.  I suggest 
'/etc/init.d/hwdaemons restart' or a reboot.
