Snort logs live at:

When I add the sensor, I enter the following:

Sensor Name: LabSensor
Sensor IP: x.x.x.x
Sensor Username: userx
Sensor Password: ****
Sensor Agent Type: SnortCenter Client v.1 (SSL enabled)
Interface name to sniff: eth0
Snort command line: /usr/local/snort/snort -c
/usr/local/snort/rules/snort.conf -l /var/snort_log_storage

And when I click the "restart" link within snort center, I get the
following on the web page:

Current config file error:
Log directory = /var/log/snort

Initializing Network Interface eth0

And on the host, I get:

Cat: /usr/local/snort/rules/snort_cmd_line.eth0: No such file or

Any assistance you can provide would be helpful.
