I'm migrating from snort 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 but now I am no longer able to dump the so rules.
The command I'm using is
snort -c /etc/snort.conf --dump-dynamic-rules=/var/smoothwall/snort/so_rules
Everything starts OK but the process ends with
ERROR: /etc//var/smoothwall/snort/so_rules/so_rules.rules(0) Unable to open rules file "/etc//var/smoothwall/snort/so_rules/so_rules.rules": No such file or directory.
Fatal Error, Quitting..
I have double and triple-checked snort.conf to make sure all the paths are correct and there are no extraneous "/etc/" anywhere, but the error persists. Is there a requirement to dump the stubs into /etc/?
Thanks in advance for your help,
