Subject: [Snort-users] Snort doesn't write unified2 files as expected
I've installed Snort on Ubuntu 12.04 using this guide: http://polaris.umuc.edu/~sgantz/Install.html
and I can't seem to get Snort to write .u2 files. None of the solutions I've come across online have fixed this problem.
I have the following line in my snort.conf:
output unified2: filename snort.u2, limit 128
I launch Snort with the following command:
snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
And Snort writes snort.log files written in PCAP instead.
Also another thing to note, even after I make direct changes to the snort.conf file it seems that when I run Snort the changes aren't taking affect. For example, I comment out the 'config logdir: /var/log/snort' line in snort.conf but when I run Snort log files (albeit pcap ones) are still outputted to the /var/log/snort directory.
Any help will be appreciated
