> Hi, I had snort working, after installing Wireshark and doing some testing I
> rebooted. Now I get an error when trying to run snort. This is on Fedora 20.
> Testing with:
> cd /usr/sbin
> ./snort -T -I p1p1 -u snort -g snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
> Snort successfully validated the config
> Then:
> snort start
> Error:
> Initializing Output Plugins!
> Snort BPF option: start
> pcap DAQ configured to passive.
> Acquiring network traffic from "nflog".
> ERROR: Can't set DAQ BPF filter to 'start' (pcap_daq_set_filter:
> pcap_compile: syntax error)!
> Fatal Error, Quitting..
> So do I need to edit some files or permissions? What can I do to fix this?
> Thank you!
