Snort 1.8 win32 running on W2K Pro
Runs fine, no crashes, just doesn't trigger correctly. 
This might be normal / known / intended bahaviour, but is definitely not
in the documents.
I haven't had a chance to test it on the Linux system yet.
When I create a dynamic rule that triggers on TCP to activate a rule
that triggers on UDP I get "an activation rule with no dynamic rules
matched". It works fine if it's UDP triggering UDP or TCP triggering
TCP, but not crossed over. Snort is 1.8 win32
activate udp any any -> any 53 (msg:"test udp
dynamic tcp any any -> any 25 (activated_by:2; count:2; msg:"Test
This fails with "an activation rule with no dynamic rules matched"
However if it UDP triggering UDP or TCP triggering TCP there is no
Any ideas?
I am writing dynamic filters for worm detection to trigger on successful
