Barnyard Test - Is this a problem?

4 posts in this topic

When I run the command 'd:winidsactivatorsby2-test' everything seems to run properly. The odd thing is the final output. 

 

From the install doc it should show: 

   Barnyard2 successfully loaded configuration file!

   Snort exiting

   database: Closing connection to database "snort"

 

What I'm seeing:

   Barnyard2 successfully loaded configuration file!

   Barnyard2 exiting

   database: Closing connection to database "snort"

 

That second line specifying 'Barnyard2'; is that a problem?

Barnyard2 has to op[en the database to test, and then it closes.

 

I guess it could be more descriptive, like > database: Opening connection to database "snort"

Yeah, I never see that; just the three lines shown. I was hoping that it would have some relation to the inability of BASE to display updated alerts, even when the alert count has incremented.  Guess I'll keep looking.

The Windows Intrusion Detection Systems security console (BASE) automatically incraments the alerts based on a setting in the base.conf file. This only happes when the Windows Intrusion Detection Systems security console is open.

 

If you want to be aleted by email on specific events, then there is a companion add-on for that.
