Snort item gone from Services

  • Currently using version 2.2-RELEASE (amd64) FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p4. We used to have access to Snort service which allowed us to clear the WAN blocked list; can no longer find it.  Where has that feature been moved to or how else can I check this data?


  • Banned

    Upgrade to 2.2.2 and reinstall Snort.

    Report back.

  • Do as @Supermule says, and also be sure you wait on the package installation screen until you see it print a text message that says something like "…package installation completed...".  I don't remember the exact wording, but if you leave the package installation screen to quickly, the last part of the install will not complete and Snort will be missing from the SERVICES menu.

    Second possibility is a NanoBSD install with not enough free space on the /tmp partition.  If you are running a Nano install, first manually increase the /tmp partition to 100 MB (the default is 40 MB) before trying to reinstall Snort.
