[Snort-users] Win32 Error: service is not responding to the control function

Hey - I'm having the same problem on my win2k box....snort runs fine when not used as a service.  Running Snort 2.1 - I get errors:
 
FROM Command Prompt: net start snort
 
The service is not responding to the control function.
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2186.
 
FROM Services MMC:
 
Could not start the Snort service on Local Computer.
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
 
But firing up snort from the command prompt using snort.exe directly works like a charm...
 
I've checked permissions on the snort.exe and all other files involved and everythings ok.  Any help would be appreciate as it's much more convenient to be running this as a service.  Thx,
 
- Mike

I don't know if it's a bug or not as I have yet to see a post on this error:
 
Running 2.0.6 b100 and 2.1.0 b09 as a service causes Snort to throw this error:
 
--------------------\
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>net start snort
The service is not responding to the control function.
 
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2186.
--------------------/
 
Left Chris a note but haven't heard back from him. Has anyone else had this problem?
 
Both run fine as long as the service is not used.
 
Kindest regards,
