Sounds like you're trying to install SNORT for MSSQL support.  The file 
nomally is found with the MSSQL Client Tools off the MSSQL server CD. 
Other than that you can get it from the Windows binary distribution of PHP-4.2.1.  This will be a zipped distro and the dll can be found in the "dlls" 
directory.  Hope this helps.

Subject: [Snort-users] Same question again..

Guys, help me out here please. This is the second time I have put out this 

question. Is the question plain stupid or do you need more information. 
Please let me know.

"I want to log in a binary format and thus am using the -b option. I am 
also 
logging all alerts to syslog. So I have something like LOG_LOCAL7 
LOG_ALERTS 
in the snort.conf file.

The problem is that if I use the -b oprion with Snort, I don't see any
alerts in the syslog.

Do the two don't work together ?"

Thanks.

Hi:
  I download  snort-stable-snapshot.tar. When it runs
it says cannot find ntwdblib.dll. Where can I find
this file?

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Hello,

I am running snort-1.8.6 (with mysql and openssl support)  on a SuSe 7.3, 
libpcap 0.7.1, tcpdump-3.7.1 with
ACID and MySQL. eth1 is on a public side (hooked up to a cisco switch).
command used:

/usr/local/bin/snort -i eth1 -c /usr/local/snort/snort.conf -D -l 
/var/log/snort

eth1 is brought up by:
ifconfig eth1 promisc up
with no IP assigned.

I can see alerts (spp_portscan) coming from the TCP and (ICMP) side, but 
no UDP packets (nmap -sU ..).

What is the Problem?


Thanks in advance,
Tino

On Linux 2.2.14, snort 1.8.4 build 99, I'm doing this:

Command line:

/usr/bin/snort184 -b -i ppp0 -o -c /usr/local/snort-1.8.4/snort184.conf

Relevant snort.conf:

<snip>
# alert_syslog: log alerts to syslog
# ----------------------------------
# Use one or more syslog facilities as arguments
#
# output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT 

output alert_syslog: LOG_DAEMON LOG_ALERT
# keep as from 1.8.2 - this is FACILITY-LEVEL, I believe.. 
# -------------------------------------------------
# output alert_full

output alert_full: /var/log/snort/alert184.full
# keep as from 1.8.2 # attempted in snort182.conf for snort 1.8.2 11/25/01 
- works ;-)
# attempted in snort18REL.conf for snort 1.8.1-RELEASE
# hasn't been shown in snort.conf for several releases: works as from 1.7
<snip>


This binary logs to this sort of a file, for example:

4678983 May 20 15:19 snort-0520 at ...5939...


and alerts go to this sort of a file:

11226 May 20 15:14 alert184.full-0520 at ...5939...


and syslog get alerts, and logcheck picks them up, thus:

<snip>
Security Violations
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
May 20 15:14:35 greatwall snort: [1:0:0] TCP to 1433 MS MySQL server {TCP}
+211.202.3.249:2986 -> 12.82.133.65:1433
<snip>


So this works for me...

YMMV..

You are not really giving us enough info to diagnose the exact problem
(ie relevant info from snort.conf and the what command line switches you
are using to start snort), which is probably why no one is replying. 

The -b option will only affect "log" output. If you are in fact using
"LOG_ALERTS" as the priority for syslog output, then that may be the
problem. LOG_ALERTS is not a valid priority for syslog. Try LOG_ALERT
(no "S") and make sure syslogd is setup correctly to handle that
facility/priority combination (man syslog.conf).

Actually, you can answer your own question.

Ever see the phrase "Command line options override....."?  Snort is 
telling
you that if you put something in the .conf file it's overriden by using a
command line option.

Use John Sages' suggestions and move it all into the .conf file.  It'll 
work.
:)

Cheers!
