[Snort-users] snort 1.7 on suse6.3 quitting

192.168.0.1/99 is not a valid CIDR notation

What are you trying to accomplish?  How many hosts?  A single host is /32  a
class C is /24.

It's not secure "Because they told me it was secure". The people at the
other end of the link know less about security than you do. And that's
scary.

Paulie,

Hi.

I check my snort.conf and below are my current settings.

var HOME_NET 192.168.0.1/99
var SMTP 192.168.0.6
var HTTP_SERVERS 192.168.0.6
var SQL_SERVERS 192.168.0.6

I still keep getting the ERROR, and it quits, but I noticed today
that it didn't quit till after scram ran from my crontab... see..
log...

Jun  2 09:20:33 gemini -- MARK --
Jun  2 09:30:00 gemini /USR/SBIN/CRON[15554]: (root) CMD (cd /usr/local/bin/
; sh sc
ram)
Jun  2 09:30:03 gemini snort: ERROR: Bad CIDR block [100:100], 1 to 32
please!

I now believe that it might be a scram script problem.... what scram
does is email me the portscan.log once daily and it creates a new
empty log file...
