Path issues

3 posts in this topic

There are a couple of path adjustments in the procedure that seem to be not quite correct.

#1: Original Line(s): var SO_RULE_PATH ../so_rules
Change to: # var SO_RULE_PATH ../so_rules

This is not actually a change, since the two lines are identical. Presumably it's supposed to be 'd:\winids\Snort\so_rules'. Is that right?

#2: Original Line(s): dynamicdetection directory /usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicrules
Change to: # dynamicdetection directory /usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicrules

This is not actually a change, since the two lines are identical. And when I run the Snort test, I get this fatal error: 'ERROR: f:\winids\snort\etc\snort.conf(258) Could not stat dynamic module path "/usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicrules": No such file or directory.'

I was going to change the path to 'f:\winids\snort\lib\snort_dynamicrules', bu that directory doesn't exist. Any ideas?

Follow the tutorial, and don't make any changes. If you have to make changes there is something wrong.

Oops. I didn't notice that the new lines were commented out. It's kind of hard to see, with the way the text is formatted. Thanks.
