I'm installing Snort 1.8.1 on winderz 2000 w/ mySQL
and ACID support following Michael Steele's article
I've run into 2 problems thus far following this
1. After expanding the snort binaries
Snort-1.8.1-win32-MySQL-static.zip(per the section
"Installing Snort with MySQL" in the above ref'd
document) and moving the rules into the "rules"
folder, c:\snort\rules, i don't seem to have
libneNT.dll left in c:\snort. Just curious why that
may be missing and if i should worry about it?
2. I continued on and have installed mySQL from
mysql-3.23.40-win.zip. After confirming the
database,user, tables, etc have been created
(following the instructions in the paper above) i run
C:\Snort>snort -c c:\snort\snort.conf -I c:\snort\logs
-i2 (where interface 2 is the one I'm using w/ snort)
When running this i get the following error:
Log directory =
--== Initializing Snort ==--
[!] ERROR: Can not get write access to logging
(directory doesn't exist or permissions are set
or it is not a directory at all)
Fatal Error, Quitting..
I can confirm the directory c:\snort\logs is there
with "full" access currently set for everyone
I'm sure I'm missing something easy in both of the
above problems. Can someone help me?
