Dear all, I have Snort 2.8 over Windows 2003 server. I have edited
snort.conf taking into account all the absolute paths in Windows. When I
want to start the snort I failes because of this error:

C:\Snort\bin>snort -de -c c:\snort\etc\snort.conf -l c:\snort\log -i2
Running in IDS mode

        --== Initializing Snort ==--

Parsing Rules file "c:\snort\etc\snort.conf"
PortVar 'HTTP_PORTS' defined :  [ 80 ]
PortVar 'SHELLCODE_PORTS' defined :  [ 0:79 81:65535 ]
PortVar 'ORACLE_PORTS' defined :  [ 1521 ]
PortVar 'FTP_PORTS' defined :  [ 21 ]
ERROR: c:\snort\etc\snort.conf(216) Missing/incorrect dynamic engine lib
Fatal Error, Quitting..

But after that I look for the line in snort.conf and I think it's correct:

line 216: dynamicengine c:\snort\lib\snort_dynamicengine\sf_engine.dll

What could be the problem ???
