Snort stopped working



  • Hey I am running version 1.2.3-RC3 built on Wed Sep 9 18:16:22 UTC 2009 and it is having troubles finding "../rules/local.rules". If I go and specify the path specifically it then has trouble:
    snort[44063]: FATAL ERROR: Failed to load /usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicengine/libsf_engine.so: Cannot open "/usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicengine/libsf_engine.so"

    Can anyone else verify this is happening to them or know a fix? I have already re-installed the package and reloaded the rules.

    Cheers,
    Podilarius



  • I went back and turned off "install emerging threats rules" and it seems to have reloaded the pfsense version of snort.conf. I turned them back on and it restarted cleanly. It would seem that after a rules update … it changes the snort.conf? Is this possible?
