[Snort-users] Request help resolving Snort error on Windows

Thanks for the response Jeff but part of the problem is that the IP
addresses thrown in the error message appear random, changing each time I
reinstall and also sometimes between multiple attempts to run Snort with
the same install. The problem occurs on some Windows machines but not
others, so I was hoping someone reading the list might be aware of
potential issues with the Windows version of Snort that could produce this
kind of error.

Waldo, I am happy to provide the contents of snort.conf but I am certain
that the conf file is not the problem, as the identical snort.conf file
works with 2.9.6.1 on some of my workstations but not others.

After installing and configuring Snort 2.9.5.x and 2.9.6.x on Windows 7
machines, starting Snort produces the error:

Error: c:\Snort\etc\snort.conf(0) Failed to parse the IP address
144.241.2.0/182.251.47.0.
Fatal Error, Quitting..

I have reinstalled several times, and the IP address in the error message
varies but the error remains. The IP addresses appear to be randomly
generated and bear no relation to anything in snort.conf, on my system, or
in the rules files. I saw one prior post (from February 2013) in the
archives with this same error, but no response with a resolution or
recommended corrective actions.

This occurs only on Windows platforms, and I have only encountered the
error since Snort 2.9.5.x. I have been using Snort on Windows for many
years without seeing anything like this, but I am stuck on what to do to
fix it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

without seeing your snort.conf, we can't even begin to start making wild
arsed guesses let alone any educated guesses ;)

please ensure that you post your response to the list and not in

You could start by grep 144.241.2.0 in your snort data directory.  Oh
wait, this is Windows...  but you get the idea.
