Summary: Trouble with pcap interfaces with colons on their name
Project: Bro Issue Tracker
Issue Type: Problem
Affects Versions: git/master
Reporter: Robin Sommer
Assignee: Robin Sommer
Pcap interfaces can have colons in their name, which confuses the new packet source code, as it uses "xxx:" to identify the type of source to use (e.g., "dag0:0" isn't handed over to pcap; instead Bro looks for a plugin "dag0" to handle the interface "0".)
As a work-around, it should work to use "-i pcap:dag:0".
- we use a different prefix separator (e.g., "-i netmap!em3")
- fallback to pcap if prefix not known.
- make the work around the solution (i.e., if in doubt, specify pcap explicitly)
