Hi Guys!!    


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
host= sensor_name=sensjrlan


Mysql and acid are on another server ( I checked that I can
telnet to port 3306 so what's wrong ?


Thanks very much!!!
