Sounds like you did not install the OS per that doc.  If you follow it
end to end it will work.  Try getting one box up first before you go off
to try an enterprise deployment.  Just start with a system with nothing
on it.  Go page by page through the fedora core 1 doc at
www.internetsecurityguru.com and when you are done, if you followed
directions, you will have a working snort sensor.  Then you can start
deploying whatever else you want, but get one working first.  What you
are trying to do is like a child that has never ridden a bike wanting to
compete at the x-games.  Get on the tricycle first and then move on.

Hi !

I us fedora core 1 (now I am trying to install the sensor from the guide
of Patrick harper) .

When I try to install snort-mysql-2.1.3-0.fdr.1.i386.rpm I receive the

[root at ...12378... snortinstall]# rpm -ivh
error: Failed dependencies:
        libmysqlclient.so.10 is needed by snort-mysql-2.1.3-0.fdr.1
[root at ...12378... snortinstall]# find / -name libmysqlclient.so.10

I also tried to download and install
libmysqlclient12-4.0.20-67426cl.i386.rpm and this is what I recieved:

[root at ...12378... snortinstall]# rpm -ivh
error: Failed dependencies:
        libcrypto.so.0.9.7 is needed by libmysqlclient12-4.0.20-67426cl
        libssl.so.0.9.7 is needed by libmysqlclient12-4.0.20-67426

Do I need to download crypto52 and install? the depandencies in really a
nightmare  !!!

Thanks !!

How Give permissions ?

Sorry I new in linux.

Open ports you mean to oprn ports if the sensors and the management are
seperated with a Firewall in the middle?

Thanks !!

The one I wrote (I would use the newer one on my site and not the RH9
one on
the snort.org site) can be easily modified for what you want.  Just open
ports and give permissions on the manager for the mysql users on the
to log in to the database.

Hi !


I looked for installing guides on the site.


I found guides that explain only installing the sensor and the
management on
the same machine.


I have (will have 4 sensors and one management) I use fedora.


Which guide to pick up?
