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.

  Subject: [Snort-users] Little install dilemma


  Hello ppl,

  I'm perplexed...and...in need of your assistance. I have been able to
install snort on my machine at home with no probs.

  I felt confident and wanted to install it at the office where I can do
real monitoring on a production network where I can learn intrusion
detection confidently and with the blessings of the powers that be in my
department. Well things did not go well during my installation, I have
looked at all possible documentation to no avail.

  It looks like something is missing from my RH 7.1 installation but I'm not
sure what it is. Would you folks please look at the screen prints [enclosed]
of the results when I type the commands ./configure, make and make install.
To someone more savvy in "C" than I, it would probably be obvious why Iam
not able to install snort on this machine. As always your input to resolving
this little install dilemma will be gratefully appreciated.

     than a lord among those without
