[Snort-users] FW: Snort_232_Build12_Installer.exe

Thank you, that does clarify the first question for me. 

I was not able to find the string "flowbits_size" in my config file, raising
the question of what platform that response may apply to. I apologize for
that, I have since found that the default flowbits_size is 128. 

Any hints as to what a good number may be to increase it to for the -current
rule-set(s)?

Will it impact performance to have it set too high? Not higher enough?

Thanks.

I'll only answer your first question.  It looks like other people on the
mailing list have already been discussing topics related to your second
question.

The most recent Win32 installer filename (Snort_232_Build12.exe) follows a
file naming convention I chose to adopt for the Win32 installers quite
some time ago.  In the past Brian had simplified the filenames when he
uploaded these installers onto the snort.org website.  The installers are
still coming from the same source (ie. me).  This particular one just
didn't have its name simplified on the snort.org website this time.

Q&A:
Is this the official Win32 installer of snort 2.3.2?  Yes.
Does Brian plan to rename the file?  Only he can answer that question.
