I had the same issue with a new sensor being created every time I
restarted.  Try these links, the update worked for me:

Subject: [Snort-users] PureSecure is crazy

Hi,

I tried to find the answer on this mailing-list but nobody seems to have
ran into the same problem as me so I'm gonna explain it in hope somebody
has a solution.

I upgraded from demarc 1.05 to PureSecure 1.6 on a redhat 7.3.
I run snort on ppp0 on one server and the console on another computer.

When I first started, I noticed a sensor I didn't know of. I deleted it
through the console but it keeps coming back with increasing sensor id.
I looked into MySQL but couldn't understand where this sensor comes
from.

Since my psd.conf indicates sensorid =3D 1, I began to think about psd
not
using psd.conf. Another point : if I change snort options in this same
file and I restart psd, it doesn't care about my options and uses the
"-o -N" default.

my psd.conf file is in the place it should be
(/usr/local/puresecure/sensor/conf) and I really don't have a clue where
to start from.

Thanks.

Subject: [Snort-users] Installing Snort on Win 2K

I realize this is a newbie question but I am trying to install Snort 
1.8.5 on a Win2K pro machine on my home network.  and am getting 
problems with finding certain files it looks for ie. Alert.ids, in 
addition when I send it to alertmail.ids it seems happy (satisfied) 
with that but when I test configuration I get a Error msg:

Error:  Openpcap device() open:
		error opening adapter
Fatal error quiting.

Any ideas what causes this and if there is somewhere where I can find 
documentation on installing snort on WIN2K  I seem to be able to find 
a plethora of info for flavors of unices.

Ronneil,

Are you really sure you have Sendmail installed?

What about sending mail from within the console of your ids box using
mail command?
What o.s. are you running?
