Hi All, am a Linux user, Fedora3. Rather new to it, and snort as well. I
have installed snort and have apache/mysql running. Am following the
tutorial for FC2 from Patrick S. Harper. I just tried starting snort and
got the following,
[root at ...274... snort]# snort -i 192.168.0.12 -dev
./var/logs/snortlogs/snort Running in packet dump mode Initializing
Network Interface 192.168.0.12 ERROR: OpenPcap() device 192.168.0.12
open: ioctl: No such device Fatal Error, Quitting..
I'm running 2 nics, one for external and one for internal. I want snort
to watch the internal, 192.168.0.12 on eth0. I feel perhaps I haven't
installed something snort is dependant on, yes,..? I tried a few times,
with some differences in the command,
[root at ...274... ~]# snort -i eth0 -dev ./var/logs/snortlogs/snort
Running in packet dump mode Initializing Network Interface eth0 ERROR:
OpenPcap() FSM compilation failed: illegal char '.' PCAP command:
./var/logs/snortlogs/snort Fatal Error, Quitting..
[root at ...274... ~]# snort -i eth0 -dev /var/logs/snortlogs/snort Running
in packet dump mode Initializing Network Interface eth0 ERROR:
OpenPcap() FSM compilation failed: syntax error PCAP command:
/var/logs/snortlogs/snort Fatal Error, Quitting.. Little lost. Can
someone direct to where I should be.? Cheers.
