Hi everybody,
     I had problem when using file_inspect to capture file send over 
FTP. Please help me resolv. Here's my Snort info:
     - Server OS:
     $cat /etc/redhat-release
     CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503 (Core)
     - Snort version:, build options: --enable-file-inspect 
--enable-open-appid --enable-sourcefire
     - configuration file:
     exactly from snortrules-snapshot-2976.tar.gz, add file_inspect 
config as discuss in README.file:
         include file_magic.conf
         preprocessor file_inspect: signature, \
               capture_queue_size 5000, \
               capture_disk /home/file_capture/tmp/

     Snort does not detect or process any file, here's my exit stat:

       Total file data sent:                 0
       Total file transfer failures:         0
     Files processed: none

     I tried to build snort v2.9.7.0, and latest but no 
luck. Please help me!

Thanks and best regards!
