I just updated trafshow to 5.2.1. It needs at least version 0.7 of 
libpcap. So installed is pkgsrc version libpcap-0.9.3nb3.

I am using NetBSD 2.0.2 on i386.

When I exit trafshow (started as root), I noticed my networking was dead.

I can't ping and all my connections are stop (not closed). The problem 
does not happen for my loopback (

When I restart trafshow, my connections and ping come up again.

I can repeat this.

If I use "sudo trafshow -p" my networking does not come back up. (This -p 
is for "Do not put interface(s) into promiscuous mode.")

Any ideas?

How can I get my network to be up when I don't have trafshow running 
(after I stop it)?

My network card:

tlp0 at pci0 dev 9 function 0: Lite-On 82C169 Ethernet, pass 2.0
tlp0: interrupting at irq 5
tlp0: Ethernet address 00:a0:cc:24:2d:40
ukphy0 at tlp0 phy 1: Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface
ukphy0: MTD972 10/100 media interface (OUI 0x00032d, model 0x0000), rev. 8
ukphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
