This is my snort.conf file:
# CHANGE THE NEXT LINE TO REFLECT YOUR NETWORK
# (Single system = your ip/32)
var HOME_NET  [xxx.xx.xxx.2/255]
#  you can define multiple networks in single variable (or use them directly
in rules)
# var HOME_NET [10.1.1.0/24,10.1.2.0/24,192.168.1.0/24]

var EXTERNAL_NET outside network IPs
                 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You need to change this to an address or use !$HOME_NET to make EXTERNAL_NET
== anything that isn't on the home network.  The error is snort trying to
resolve the name "outside" and not finding a DNS entry.
