RE: [ISSForum] Proventia Devices (Fiber packet captures)

One issue with the multiport Proventias (A604 and A1204) is the inability to
do raw packet captures on the IDS interfaces with tcpdump or the like. When
one does an ifconfig the fiber interfaces are not even listed.

This is a serious impediment to troubleshooting IDS issues as well as
testing the installation in a complex environment.

If I had thought to test that before we started deploying them, I might not
have ordered any.
