[Fwd: RE: [Snort-users] Log to remote syslog server and MySql Database]

I searched the list archives last night (or was that early this morning) and
found the thread between Michael Steele and others concerning syslog and
Win32; I also found your posts and the patches.  

Unfortunately, my particular Snort WinNT4 box is running WinPCap 2.02 and
Snort 1.8.6.  The box is a dual Pentium III and all versions of WinPCap
newer than 2.02 disable themselves when they detect an SMP environment.
Also, all versions of Snort newer than 1.8.6 require a WinPCap driver that
is newer than 2.02.  There is a FAQ in the WinPCap site about SMP support,
but today at least, the site appears to be down.  Hopefully not for good... 

Since I don't want to disable one of the processors on my WinNT4 box, I'm
kinda "stuck" w/ Snort 1.8.6, at least until WinPCap officially supports SMP

Thanks anyway for the e-mails and other attachments!

looky here. I found an old email with the patches. I also have an old
Snort 1.8.7 Win32 with mySQL executable with the syslog patch built in,
in case you want that as well. The patches may or may not work anymore
since they are half a year old. You can always hack the source yourself.
Just remove the pv.cmd_verride=1 line in the case section for -s.

Okay, here are two patches for snort and snort_1_8 that cause snort not
to override the command line when -s is specified. That allows users to
use -s in the command line while still using the other configs from
snort.conf, which will allow Windows users to log to remote syslog

Please commit to CVS.
