PfSense 1.2.3 nano & Snort 2.8.5.3 pkg v. 1.21



  • Does anyone know if the new development of snort runs on pfSense BSD nano?

    I keep having problems with it locking up on install and not allowing me to configure anything via the webconfiguration.  I end up having to reboot and reload the pfsense box.



  • When I installed, the package and the updates, then configured the interface, I get locked out completely out of the configuration of the pfsense.  I have rebooted the web configurator and still am not able to do anything.  I am able to use the serial with telnet access, but that is about all I can do.

    Easy fix.
    Why is snort doing that to you?
    Why am I not seeing this error?

    ssh to your box and restart the webconfiguator. ( '11)  Restart webConfigurator ').

    Something like this happened to my instalation also. I was messing around with Snort memory settings and accidenly chose AC in a quite low resources system. Snort ate practicly all my resources (could not eaven log into pfsense gui). In my case this was solved by ssh connection to the box and stopping snort process.
