Im fairly new to LInux, and have been tasked with building a snort
sensor for our network.
I have Suse 9 , snort 2.12 with Barnyard 0.2.0 and mysql up and running.
None of the services (apache/mysql/barnyard/snort) are running when I
start the server.
I see that I can add apache and mysql to the various runlevels using
Yast, but Im not quite sure how exactly to script the startup of snort
Ive seen references to snortd, but I cant seem to find any definitive
references to make snort a Daemon, other than the command line switch
which would mean Id have to have it in a script somewhere.
I have no experience with startup scripting of any kind other than
dumping one liners in rc.local.
I see that startup scripts would go in the appropriate runlevel
folder, but is a startup script
as simple as just typing in the snort start command with the proper
switches, saving it a s afile and dumping it in the right rc.3, and
rc.5 directories? From what I can gather there is more to it, and it
looks like it involves some C coding (which I dont know).
Can somone point me to the right direction? all the books mention
using some runlevel editor tool, but that doesnt seem to apply to
snort, since its not a distro installed service.
any help or insight appreciated.
