Hi thanks for the quick response
But how will i update to 1.30. I am not seeing any options to update
Bellow information is from ,installed packages list.
Package Info Current: 2.8.6 pkg v. 1.30
Installed: 2.8.6 pkg v. 1.27
Used by fortune 500 companies and governments Snort is the most widely deployed IDS/IPS technology worldwide. It features rules based logging and can perform content searching/matching in addition to being used to detect a variety of other attacks and probes, such as buffer overflows, stealth port scans, CGI attacks, SMB probes, and much more. [Remove this package.]
[Reinstall this package.] [Reinstall this package's GUI components.]
First, In Services: Snort.., select - Keep snort settings after deinstall and save the Global settings
This will store old snort settings and applies that settings back, after the snort is updated.
Click on [Reinstall this package.] from Installed packages list.
Wait for the installation to complete. Check Global Settings and then Save.
In snort interfaces tab, stop the snort service (I do like that ::)), then try for update rules.
After updating rules start the snort service.
I updated the snort to 1.30
Snort service is stoped.
Now i am trying to update rules, its wait for couple of minutes but then it does not update anything
its saying : The rules directory is empty.(Snort->Rule update)
WARNING: The main rules directory is empty. /usr/local/etc/snort/rules
If i go to : SnortInterface->WanInterface->category-> # The rules directory is empty. /usr/local/etc/snort/snort_63732_re0/rules
what to do now ?
