  • Hi,

    snort not work after upgrade how to fix it.

  • Having just spent 5 hours mucking about with snort other bits and pieces in the pfSense packages, i can sympathize with it not working, but i think even the BOFFINS on this Forum will need slightly more information than you have offered….

    More information will be helpful.  What error messages, if any, are showing the in system log?

    I have Snort working fine in both 2.0.3 and 2.1-RELEASE virtual machines (32-bit and 64-bit versions).  The very first thing to try is to remove Snort and then reinstall.

    First, go to the Global Settings tab in Snort and be sure the checkbox near the bottom of the page is checked to keep Snort settings after a de-install.

    Next, go to System…Packages and click the Installed Packages tab.

    Locate the Snort package and click the X icon to remove it.

    When that completes, go back to System…Packages under the Available Packages tab and reinstall it.
