Martina,

First, make sure that the var RULE_PATH is set in snort.conf.  Second, run snort -T -c /path to snort.conf/snort.conf

See if that doesn't fix the problem.

Subject: [Snort-users] snort -T failure



hello,

Yesterday I wrote because I had a problem with 'unicode'. I found out that I
installed the wrong version of snortrules. Now I installed
snort-1.8.7.tar.gz and snortrules.tar.gz following the manual Snort, MySQL,
Redhat 7.2. 
I tried the snort -T command again and got a new failure message: 

[root at ...274... inprog]# snort -T
Log directory = /var/log/snort
Initializing Network Interface eth0
using config file /root/.snortrc
Initializing Preprocessors!
Initializing Plug-ins!

Parsing Rules file /root/.snortrc
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Initializing rule chains...
ERROR: Unable to open rules file: /root/.snortrc or /root//root/.snortrc
Fatal Error, Quitting.. 

I didn't found the .snortrc file on the redhat mashine. Why snort wants to
use the .snortrc file to inizialise and not the snort.conf file? What can I
do now to run snort?

best regards
martina podesser
