[Snort-users] SnortSnarf for Wiodows Complains of Inability t o Find JulianDay.p l

JulianDay.pm already exists on my system in:

	C:\Program Files\Silicon
Defense\SWI\SnortSnarf\Time-modules\lib\Time

However, at your suggestion I typed:

	C:\>ppm install time-modules

And this happened...

	Installing package 'time-modules'...
	Bytes transferred: 14644
	Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\Time\CTime.pm
	Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\Time\DaysInMonth.pm
	Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\Time\JulianDay.pm
	Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\Time\ParseDate.pm
	Installing C:\Perl\site\lib\Time\Timezone.pm
	Writing C:\Perl\site\lib\auto\Time\modules\.packlist

Note that ppm installed the modules in what appear to be the "correct"
location. So now I'm wondering why the swib10.exe installer from Silicon
Defense would put the files where it did.

In any case, the error message went away. It remains to be seen whether
SnortSnarf.pl will work properly.

Eric,

The problem appears to be that you do not have the Time::JulianDay
module for perl.  I'm not sure why, but if you are running the
ActiveState perl for Windows, you can install it by running the
following command:

"ppm install Time-modules "

PPM is the Perl package Manger, and it will go out and locate that
module, download it and install it.

I used the swib10.exe installer from Silicon Defense to install Snort
for
Windows and SnortSnarf.

I then ran...

	C:\Program Files\Silicon Defense\SWI\SnortSnarf>snortsnarf.pl

And it said...

	Can't locate Time/JulianDay.pm in @INC (@INC contains: ./include
C:/Perl/lib C:/Perl/site/lib . ./include/SnortSnarf) 
		at include/SnortSnarf/AlertBase.pm line 69.
	BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at

	BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\Program Files\Silicon
Defense\SWI\SnortSnarf\snortsnarf.pl line 216.

I suppose I could fix this if I knew how to tell snortsnarf.pl where to
look
for JulianDay.pl, but the bigger question to me is, why should I have to
do
this? Is this something that the installation overlooks?

Any ideas? 

(Please no Unix vs. Windows flames, thanks.)
