[Snort-users] Snort.conf 2.9.4

The link is not correct, and should be:


I'm still rather confused. Is that the correct configuration for 2.9.4. Do I
need to ask the question; "Is the output database option been put back in";
because the snort.conf attached to the above link contains:


# database

# output database: alert, <db_type>, user=<username> password=<password>
test dbname=<name> host=<hostname>

# output database: log, <db_type>, user=<username> password=<password> test
dbname=<name> host=<hostname>


Is it possible someone from the Sourcefire team can fix the link and attach
a corrected snort.conf for 2.9.4 in the link above.


Also, matching the snort.conf from the 2.9.4 tarball and the snort.conf from
the above 2.9.4 link, shows a multitude of differences.


Is Sourcefire actually distributing the source and executables with updated
configuration files, makes me wonder.

Is the configuration files that have been supplied with the 2.9.4 release of
Snort good? I'm never confident that the sourcefire team provides a good
snort.conf file with the tarball, or exe.


It appears the link to the latest snort 2.9.4 configuration is not even
working. How hard could this be to check after linking?
