Hi Fraser,

Can you provide the configuration? Also the command line to run snort.

Subject: [Snort-users] Problems configuring react: msg;


I have setup snort running as an IPS using NFQUEUE.

I can detect rules and run block and deny on them however I cannot seem to get react to respond with a html page.

here is my configure command:

./configure --enable-sourcefire --enable-open-appid --enable-react --enable-flexrsp3

I am running Snort

my rule example is:

drop tcp any any -> any $HTTP_PORTS  (msg:"http://www.news.com.au"; content:"news.com.au<http://news.com.au>"; react: msg; sid:283; rev:1;)

I have followed the docs and I am happy to accept all defaults at this stage with regard to the response but the connection still just times out regardless.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
