[Snort-users] Strange Problem Restarting Snort

Hello Everyone,

I defined my Home_Net like this:

var HOME_NET
[192.168.1.0/24,192.168.2.0/24,192.168.3.0/24,192.168.4.0/24]

If i restart snort, i sometimes (not always) get the following error:

ERROR: Undefined variable name: (/etc/snort/snort.conf:44): eth0_ADDRESS
Fatal Error, Quitting..

If i edit snort.conf i find the following statement, and my old entry of
home_net like above is missing.

var HOME_NET $eth0_ADDRESS

I never do any changes in the snort.conf, but the home_net changes.

I think it's a little bit strange, can you help me?

Greetings Chris
