When I start snort manually from the command line /etc/init.d/snort start I
see that snort starts:
Starting Intrusion Database System: SNORT
SNORT is up and running!
On /var/log/messeges I see:
Sep 17 21:02:54 sensjrlan snort: FATAL ERROR: /etc/snort/snort.conf(458) =>
Unknown rule type: ports
In snort.conf the 458 line is this:
output database: alert, mysql, user=snort password=snort dbname=snort
Mysql and acid are on another server (188.8.131.52) I checked that I can
telnet to port 3306 so what's wrong ?
Thanks very much!!!
