hi all...

i just installed snort. it looks like it's working. i downloaded the vrt 
rules of the month. subscribed and everything....

but i see a lot of these at stat up:

Encoded Rule Plugin SID: 15227, GID: 3 not registered properly.  
Disabling this rule.
Encoded Rule Plugin SID: 14648, GID: 3 not registered properly.  
Disabling this rule.
Encoded Rule Plugin SID: 16229, GID: 3 not registered properly.  
Disabling this rule.
Encoded Rule Plugin SID: 15208, GID: 3 not registered properly.  
Disabling this rule.
..............................................................
.............................................................

digging at the SID #s i mostly get plugins that a referring to windows 
exploits. and this is running on a unix system. is that why i get all these?



and then a bunch of those here...  what does "is set but not ever 
checked" mean...    thanks....
