Suricata Barnyard2 Remote Syslog. Broken?



  • I'm trying to push Suricata alert logs to a remote syslog server. Barnyard2 doesn't seem to be working. The only way I can get Suricata alerts to the remote server is to configure Suricata to write to the local system log and then forward the local system log to the remote syslog server.

    Any ideas? Is Barnyard2 broken?

    Barnyard2 is slowly dying on the vine as the FreeBSD port has not been materially updated in several years. However, it should still run with Suricata and pfSense. Are you sure Barnyard2 is actually starting on the interface? Are there any messages in the pfSense system log relating to Barnyard2?
