Hello In there 😊


Do you get the “Could not set the event message file” error when it starts correctly?

Subject: [Snort-users] PROBLEM STARTING SNORT


Hello out there, 

I use Snort 2.9.12 on a Windows 10 Pro Mashine. When I want to start Snort most of the time the following Failure comes up:

ERROR: C:\Snort\etc\snort.conf(0) Failed to parse the IP address:

After calling the same command several times again sometimes snort starts. But it should start on every call.

Attached you find my snort.conf. I downloaded and i am using the Snort_2_0_12_Installer.exe.


Thanks for your help.


Kind regards

Christian Laudor
