[Snort-users] snort 1.7 and snort.conf

Dear list users,

I try to make run snort by using

ns2:/snortrules # snort -D -i eth0 -c /snortrules/snort.conf -t /snort

which perfectly runs.

But as soon as I'm not anymore in the directory /snortrules where snort.conf
and all rulesets are, I cannot anymore start snort.
I get this error:
Apr 13 18:46:44 ns2 snort: ERROR: Unable to open rules file: exploit.rules

I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I have taken a look into
documentation but could not find any hints.

Thanx for any help.

Philipp
