    it says:

    pgrep: Pidfile `/var/run/snort_pppoe139459.pid' is empty

    i also tried a clean re install of snort is written in the forum but id does not helped

  • Hello Mr. Developer

    please add a verbose or debug output of rules which are not compatible or not working with snort , as an clear error log
    because pfsense 2.0.1 i386 nanobsd vga + snort pkg v. 2.5.1 and if activated from the categories/rules "snort_attack-responses.rules" snort wont start and quit with a not showing in that direction, error message.

    you got the error message as in the thread above

    pgrep: Pidfile `/var/run/snort_pppoe139459.pid' is empty

    i have activated all categories/Rules without,(not activated), the "snort_attack-responses.rules" rules and now snort works so far …

    and btw "Enable Sensitive Data" under preprocessor is hard tobac :) :)
