Missing White_List.rules

3 posts in this topic

So I got through the setup of pulled pork with no real problems. I finally get to the last step of running the Snort self-test using the command line

d:winidssnortbinsnort -c d:winidssnortetcsnort.conf -l d:winidssnortlog -i1 -T

It comes back with an error 

ERROR: d:winidssnortetcsnort.conf(507) => Unable to open address file d:winidssnortrules/white_list.rules, Error: No such file or directory Fatal Error, Quitting..

Not sure what I messed up exactly.

Appears the section labeled 'Configuring the existing Windows Intrusion Detection System (WinIDS)' had a problem.

Open a CMD window and type 'type NUL > d:winidssnortruleswhite_list.rules' (less the outside quotes), and tap the 'Enter' key.

Now try the command again.

Perfect that did it. I then got an error with black_list.rules and I did the same Nul command again. Everything looks like it is good to.
