I haven't tried on OBSD in some time. Interesting comments about OpenBSD
headaches.  Been using both FreeBSD and OpenBSD since 2.x days. I know
there have been ongoing issues w/Bro on OBSD but otherwise it's been
rock solid. Wish I could say same about FreeBSD, wh/we've all but
abandoned.  We use OBSD in more narrowly targeted capacities, however,
so perhaps not a fair comparison.
