generally speaking, this is due to the lack of classification.conf being where 
snort can find and read it... in some cases, it is because the classification 
file being used does not contain the specified classification type...

please, as a start, post your snort.conf or whatever configuration file you are 

please also keep your posts and responses on the list... it may help others in 
the future when they search the list archives for the same or a similar problem...

  NOTE: No off-list assistance is given without prior approval.
        Please *keep mailing list traffic on the list* unless
        private contact is specifically requested and granted.
