Hello, I recently became the network engineer of Laurel County Schools.  As
part of my job, I am trying to implement some security and logging abilities
to the network. We are using Snort 1.9 for Windows.  I have a problem
getting it to run in NDIS... 
 
C:\Snort>snort -c chat.conf -l c:\snort\log
Initializing Output Plugins!
Log directory = c:\snort\log
 
Initializing Network Interface \
 
        --== Initializing Snort ==--
Decoding Ethernet on interface \Device\NPF_{A4116FF7-6102-
}
Initializing Preprocessors!
Initializing Plug-ins!
Parsing Rules file chat.conf
 
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Initializing rule chains...
ERROR => Undefined variable name: (chat.conf:10): HOME_NET
Fatal Error, Quitting..
 
C:\Snort>
 
Basically I am just trying to load the rules for chat clients and it keeps
giving me this error.  I tried to debug the code, but I am not sure of all
what is going inside the ruleset.  Can anyone help me?
 
Also if I'm sending this to the wrong place I'm sorry.  If there is a more
appropriate place I would appreciate the link.
