After doing some more research ( google ) I found threads of
incompatibility. I also am unable to straight tcpdump the files
anymore. It is a gentoo box and I am looking into what changes the SA
may have made. Thank you for your quick response. I will let you know
if I come up with a resolution so you can add to FAQ if you wanted
even though it's not specific to your application. Looks like it's a
really slick app so I will invest some time into trying to get it
