snort-acid problem
« on: June 13, 2002, 08:29:16 PM »
I ve just installed snort on my e-smith but it's like that it's not active... NOthing is logged et appear in the acid panel. I've had a look at the service (service snortd status) and i've found that it was unactive ! Whenever I activate it (service snortd start) the server say that it is ok but a service status check tell it is unactive again...

Thanks in advance for any help.

Weird...I've just had exactly the same thing happen to me....installed as per the guide linked from the HOWTO pages with no problem but 'service snortd status' tells me the daemon isn't running. However, I got a friend to nmap me from a remote machine and it got picked up straight away and Guardian blocked his IP quite happily.

That's because it doesn't use service...

doing a service snortd status won't return the correct result.

Try doing a "ps -ef | grep snort"

or a "ps -ef | grep guardian"
