Hi Joel,
 
It makes no difference by removing "-A console", I did the following and I got SR with 'No data" :
 
 sudo /usr/local/snort/bin/snort -u snort -g snort -c /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -i eth0
 
ps: eth1 shoud be eth0 in previous email.
 
Does anyone have any idea/direction? It would be highly appreciated. 
 
Thanks
 
Regards
 
John

Is it because with the #2 line, your output is to console? "-A console", remember command line overrides the snort.conf output lines.

Hi,
 
BASE is not maintained, as well as it's lack of docs, so I choose Snort Report (SR).  I have got lots of help from David Gullett, David has done a wonderful job,  thanks David.
 
Two issues on Snort2.8.6.0 with SR 1.3 are very strange, I thought you guys may be interested to know, please see the followings:
 
1.) If I do following commands:
 
sudo /usr/local/snort/bin/snort -D -u snort -g snort -c /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -i eth0
sudo /usr/local/bin/barnyard2 -c /usr/local/snort/etc/barnyard2.conf -G /usr/local/snort/etc/gen-msg.map -S /usr/local/snort/etc/sid-msg.map -d /var/log/snort -f snort.u2 -w /var/log/snort/barnyard2.waldo
 
The results: the activated rules on emerging.conf and settings on threshold.conf are not working, but the SR is working, snort is running with VRT rules only (not running ET rules&threshold.conf )
 
2.) or If I do the following command:
 
 sudo /usr/local/snort/bin/snort -u snort -g snort -c /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -i eth1 -A console 
 
The results: the activated rules on emerging.conf and settings on threshold.conf are working, but the SR is not working (no data), and snort is running with VRT rules and ET rules and threshold.conf .
 
Same issues happen to Snort 2.9.0 with SR1.3.
 
I would like to solve these issues before I put Snort 2.8.6 &2.9.0 with SR 1.3 into our live network.
 
Any information/idea/direction would be highly appreciated.
 
Regards
 
John
