Subject: [Snort-users] Testing Snort
Hello All,
I have just installed snort for the first time and am trying to test it
from my PC.
I am having trouble testing the web-iis rules.
I have tried accessing /msadcs.dll and /cmd.exe on some of the web
servers on our LAN, but no alerts are created by snort.
I added the following rule Snort as a test, which produced plenty of
alert tcp any any -> $HOME_NET $HTTP_PORTS (msg:"Test WEB-IIS";
flow:to_server; sid:1970; rev:6;)
However, when I add 'uricontent:"/msadcs.dll"; nocase;' to the above
rule I do not get any alerts.
I am new to Snort, so I imagine (hope) it's something pretty simple.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I am running Snort 2.1.3 on a Windows XP PC.
