    How well did Snort keep up, however? I can't believe it wasn't missing
    packets at that point...

    We've deployed this scenario on Linux + Free S/Wan running snort on all
    physical interfaces and all ipsecX interfaces for folks. The fastest
    wire-speed we've had on one of these deployments is T1, and a PIII450
    has handled VPN traffic at wirespeed even with the added load of snort.
    Sorry I don't have any higher-bandwidth benchmarks for you.

    Hi folks,
    I have recently tested snort on a vpn-gateway that runs on linux (just
    for testing purposes, no productive server).
