It looks like there is a problem with the dynamic pre-processors within IDSPM. They are being cut short for some reason. I will take a look at this a little more and let you know. For now if you disabled the ftp_telnet and SMTP preprocessors it should work fine.

Dear Snort Gurus,


Please provide me solution for the below problem:


1. I have installed Snort on Windows.

2. Using IDS policy Manager downloaded the latest rules and pushed to the sensor.

3. After restarting the sensor getting the error : 


C:\win-ids\Snort\etc\snort.conf(134) => Invalid keyword 'preprocessor' for 'global' configuration.


Please find my snot.conf attached for your reference.
