Confused by edit in tutorial - edit snort.conf

3 posts in this topic

I am editing the snort.conf file with notepad2 and I am confused by this section of the Tutorial for x64 MySQL install:

Original Line(s):
# include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH/preprocessor.rules
# include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH/decoder.rules
# include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH/sensitive-data.rules
Change to:
include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH/preprocessor.rules
include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH/decoder.rules
include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH/sensitive-data.rules

There is no change here!?  Would I be correct in changing to the 'Change to:' section to this?

include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH d:\winids\snort\etc\preprocessor.rules

include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH d:\winids\snort\etc\decoder.rules

include $PREPROC_RULE_PATH d:\winids\snort\etc\sensitive-data.rules

Or is there a different path for these rules?

 

Thank You!

No, you are supposed to enable the lines by removing the # (hash tags).

LOL!  Thank You!  I didn't even notice the Hash Tags.
