I installed SNORT on a fresh Ubuntu 10.04 by following http://it.thelibrarie.com/weblog/?p=515


snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth0


I get the following:


Running in IDS mode

--== Initializing Snort ==--

Initializing Output Plugins!

Initializing Preprocessors!

Initializing Plug-ins


....pls see the attached details of "Snort installation error.rtf"...




Initializing rule chains...

Warning: /etc/snort/rules/dos.rules(42) => threshold (in rule) is deprecated; use detection_filter instead.

ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/community-smtp.rules(13) => !any is not allowed

Fatal Error, Quitting..


Can't find much info via "google", so I would like to have your help.


Any info and help would be much appreciated.


Thanks for your patience with my many Snort questions.
