[Snort-users] Snort+flexresp and "raw socket for libnet"

This is exactly what I did, downloaded the sources (actually src.rpms), compiled
and installed libnet, modified the .spec file to compile only the
plain+flexresp, compile and install. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Is anybody
else experiencing the same problem ?

Thanks and all the best,

-> Hello fellow snorters,
-> I am trying to use the flexresp in snort and I am getting this error:
-> FATAL ERROR: ERROR: cannot open raw socket for libnet, exiting...

Did you download a binary package? If so, scrap that out, and grab the snort
source then recompile
with --with-flexresp. One more, you must install libnet first. Grab it from

Hope this helps...
