I found the problem.. it has to do with the parser in IDS Policy Manager. There are some lines that have a space at the end while others don’t. If there is a space after a \ the line is not parsed correctly. We will get a fix out ASAP for this.

 

Cheers,

Jeff

Dear Snort Gurus,

 

Please provide me solution for the below problem:

 

1. I have installed Snort 2.8.3.1 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.
