Some stuff changed between the fc2 for 2.2.0 doc and the fc3 for 2.3.0 doc
to accommodate changes in the snort tarball.  I would suggest going using
the new doc.  Also I am assuming you are wanting to log to a database at
some point right? Or do you just want to dump raw logs?  The default logs
dir is /var/log/snort, have you tried letting it log there? Or you will need
the -l and no .

Subject: [Snort-users] Starting Snort Errors-Fedora3

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.

Mark Sargent.
