What is the correct method to start a process (in this case Snort in daemon
mode) at start-up? I am using RedHat LINUX 7.2.

Can someone share the script they use in /etc/init.d/ to start/stop Snort?

I am currently starting Snort like this:

/usr/local/bin/snort -d -h -l /var/log/snortlogs -c
/usr/local/etc/snort.config/snort.conf -D

 ..Thanks, Dan
