Snort Warning



  • Hello,

    I'm new here. Very cool forum. My problem with Snort is that it shows me this:

    Warning:
    New settings will not take effect until interface restart.

    I did the setup like the guide (sticky above) told me, but I can't get rid of this warning message. It's there after restarting the whole machine, when I restart Snort, when I disable and enable the daemon and so on. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Best,
    Xtern



  • That piece of text is there to remind you to restart Snort if you make any changes.

    Fragged is right.  That's just a "reminder" sort of message to let you know that most changes to Snort interface parameters require a restart of Snort on the interface in order for the new settings to become active.
