Hey all, I'm still messing around with snort. I've
changed my snort.conf file to look like:
var HOME_NET $elxl0_ADDRESS
var EXTERNAL_NET !$HOME_NET
var SMTP X.X.X.X
var HTTP_SERVERS $HOME_NET
var SQL_SERVERS $HOME_NET
where X.X.X.X is a valid IP.
and I'm now starting snort with:
/usr/local/bin/snort -A fast -l /var/log/snortlogs -c
where /var/log/snortlogs DOES exist. Unfortunately,
when I start snort, it says it's initializing daemon
mode but dies. The error message in /var/adm/messages
Apr 11 20:34:01 MYHOST.MYNETWORK snort: [!]
ERROR: Bad value in variable definition!
Apr 11 20:34:01 MYHOST.MYNETWORK snort:
Make sure you don't have a "$" in the var name
I've tried using "var HTTP_SERVERS HOME_NET" (i.e.
without the $) but that didn't work. It DID work
before when I had !$HOME_NET for EXTERNAL_NET, but I
had 10.x.x.x numbers for HTTP and MYSQL.
I'm running Solaris 2.6 x86. Thanks for your help.
