Hi Troy
The error message is quite self-explaining. You did not define/(assign a
value) the homenet variable usually at the beginning of the script. 
One more thing. I advice you never post your security configuration and
company name in news groups. If you do so, you are also giving a lot of
information about your defense to potential attackers.

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..
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.
