Snort issues



  • two quick questions;

    when snort blocks someone what file does it write the ip in? i looked in /usr/local/etc/snort but couldnt find where it lists the host ip…

    also,

    on the block page it says: "This page lists hosts that have been blocked by Snort. Hosts are automatically deleted every hour."  however on the front settings page theres an option that says: "Remove blocked hosts every" ... which one is true then? if i set the option for 12 hours will it remain blocked for 12 hours? what about the text on the blocked page above?



  • The text changes with the setting.

    Snort does not write blocked ips to file.
    Snort adds blocked ips to pf table.
