     Re: [snips-users] Etherload in SNIPS v1.1


You're correct. I found that etherload was owned by snips rather than root. Changing the ownership resolved the problem.

Typically only 'root' can access the raw ethernet interface. Check to see
that 'etherload' is installed suid root (test by doing su root and then
running etherload).

I am receiving the following error whenever I attempt to run etherload:

Here is the portion of the config file which deals with the interfaces:

        device hme0
        bw      30  50  70
        pps     500 1000 1500

        device hme1
        bw      30  50  70
        pps     500 1000 1500

What is wrong with this setup? Is my configuration incorrect, or does
something need to be done at the OS level (Solaris 8) to allow access to
the device (/dev/hme)?
