You will need SQL*Net drivers on the box Snort is running on to talk to the
Oracle database.  I am not sure about your compile error..

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort logging to Oracle

Hi all,

Do I need to install Oracle on sensor host to get snort logging to a remote
database? I hope that not... I took some header files from oracle-linux
8.0.7,  snort 1.8 compiles without complaining on header files missing, but
there is a weird error -

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I. -I/usr/include/pcap  -I/usr/include/mysql -D
ENABLE_MYSQL -I/usr/local/rdbms/demo -I/usr/local/rdbms/public -I/usr/local/
network/public -DENABLE_ORACLE  -g -O2 -Wall -c spp_anomsensor.c
spp_anomsensor.c:1781: parse error before `int'
spp_anomsensor.c:1785: parse error before `int'
make: *** [spp_anomsensor.o] Error 1

(today's CVS snapshot)

snort is configured --with-oracle --without-openssl --without-postgresql
(--with-openssl also gives a strange error, but i'm more interested in
oracle than  in openssl).

if i omit --with-oracle, everything compiles perfectly... do I miss
