Hi all,

My first attempt at using Snort - new product to me.

Attempting to load and validate config file the following error is thrown up.

Decoding Ethernet
ERROR: log_tcpdump: Failed to open log file "c:\snort\log/c:\snort\log.1461579119
9": Invalid argument
Fatal Error, Quitting..

I update my config file to point to c:\snort\log but I do not understand why it is looking for a log.1461579119?

There is no file in that folder named as such so I can understand why it's failing.
