Snort Service Not Running..?



  • Good day guys!

    I have installed Snort but it seems that Snort is refusing to start its service. I have updated the rules.. But i found this logs in systems firewall..

    Sep 24 11:17:45 snort[4649]: FATAL ERROR: /usr/local/etc/snort/snort_20626_em0/snort.conf(90) Unknown config directive: enable_gtp.
    Sep 24 11:17:45 snort[4649]: FATAL ERROR: /usr/local/etc/snort/snort_20626_em0/snort.conf(90) Unknown config directive: enable_gtp.

    This should be the problem why Snort cant start. Anybody have tried fixing this?

    Thank you!

    There is an error in your snort.conf file.  Try going to the Interfaces tab in Snort, click the "e" edit icon next to an interface.  Click the Preprocessors tab for the interface.  At the bottom of the page click the Reset button to set the default values.  Click Save to generate a new snort.conf file.

    Now try starting Snort again.  Since this is really a Snort package question and not a firewall question, you will get a quicker reply over in the Packages forum.
