To just validate you run snort with the -T, the config file and no other arguments.

Can you share your configuration file?

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort Configuration ERROR


I'm having a lot of trouble trying to validate my configuration of Snort.

I'm entering this command:
sudo snort -T -i eth0 -u snort -g snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf

And then it will run, but at the end, I get this error:
ERROR: /etc/snort/snort.conf(326) => Invalid keyword '}' for server configuration.
Fatal Error, Quitting..

I've seen other posts from people who've recently gotten this error too, but I've seen no solution. I tried commenting line 326 out in my snort.conf file, but then the error just kept moving to the following lines.

Can someone please help? I'm installing Snort on a Ubuntu VM.
