Re: Snort has different IPs than Wireshark

This appears to be fixed in BASE-1.4.5. The bug ID in their bug tracker
is 2889623:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2889623&group_id=103348&;
atid=635582 

In an attempt to use the most recent code I am using the CVS source. It
still has issues.

I am getting the feeling that BASE is becoming unmaintained. Anybody
have info to the contrary?

Hi Russ,
You are absolutely correct. After some investigation it is base causing
the issues. I discovered that the database has the addresses correctly
stored and a dump form tcpdump and snort produce correct outputs. A
colleague of mine and I discovered Base has a small bug. It is detailed
in the attached document.
Base version is 1.4.4

Just looking at your pcap it is hard to say but Snort and Wireshark are
in agreement on the addresses so maybe it is a Base issue.
