You don't state what OS platform and snort version you're refering to;
that would be potentially helpful information.
"./snort -dev -l ./log -h 192.168.1.0/24 -c snort.conf"
is the command line, typed at a command prompt.
This invokes snort when the current directory contains the snort
executable ( ./snort ) and also snort.conf ( -c snort.conf )
-l ./log sets logging into the current directory;
-h 192.168.1.0/24 sets this as $HOME_NET -- is that correct for your
The rules files you should have received with the snort distribution,
and would be files named *.rules, also in the snort installation
Does this make any sense at all?
The weirdest thing about Window$ is that it's so opaque
