That is apparent.  The fact that snoop doesn't trip the promiscious
mode for ifconfig is what bothered me.  A preliminary truss of snoop
showed it opening /dev/udp.  The problem I'm also running into is
that lsof does not appear to work under 2.4, as some internal file
structures have changed.  Someone has suggested doing some filtering
on lsof output, as a way of keeping an eye out.
