Fairly inexperienced with snort as well as linux (mandrake linux 9.0).
After reading the documentation on snort I downloaded snort, vs 1.9.0,
along with the other required programs. I edited the various files to
suit my setup. To test snort I typed " /usr/local/bin/snort -A full -b
-c /etc/snort/snort.conf -d -i eth2 -s -D" on the command line. After I
receive Initialization Complete and 3 lines referring to the version and
builder the program halts and the cursor is at the beginning of a line
that does not have a prompt. To get back a prompt I used Control C
which displays a table: Breakdown by Protocol, Wireless Stats,
Fragmentation Stats andTCP Reassembly Stats then the prompt.
My problem is why is the program halting and how do I correct it?
