Hi again,

I got the new packages installed and everything seemed to go well.

However, nothing shows in BASE.  

There is no /var/log/snort/alert log.

This is all I get in /var/log/guardiand/current:

repeaded many times.

Does this suite work for Server Only mode?  Almost all my (clients') servers are installed that way, with only certain ports forwarded into the server.  Are there specific settings recommended for Server Only mode?

I'm sorry to be the problem child...I'm new to IDS.

Thank you again, (Michael) everyone.

Hi,

guardiand/current logfile is flooding with this message:

Though my messages were a bit different, my logs were filling fast and my server was constantly busy.

I had to uninstall the rpms.

Is there some way I can help in troubleshooting this?

Thanks again for all your efforts,

snort on 7

MasterSleepy... I followed your directions and have installed Snort on SME 7. And its been running for almost a week now, with NO logs at all. I keep checking base to see if anything has been detected and there is nothing in the cache. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I'd installed (using your directions) on previous versions of SME and everything worked great. Please help.

here is my guardian log:

i checked out the information on that other forum, and i didn't find any of it to be useful in solving the problem. i hope that mastersleepy can provide a solution.

Hi there !

I'm having a huge 100% cpu utilisation all the time with the last rpm smeserver-snort-2.6.0-2.i386.rpm and all up to date rpms needed

I've deinstalled all the needed rpms, suppressed folders and sql bases as told on the download area and cpu utilisation gets back to 2% !!!

I tryed another install, with the old rpm version smeserver-snort-2.4.4-2.i386.rpm. cpu utilisation is better, but still it's at 35-50% all the time...
Is that normal ??? Normally, i'm near 2-10% max...

Then, i tested a scan+vulnerabilities probe (server-only, scan from lan) and snort+guardiand didn't blacklist me... Is that normal too ?

I'm having the same issue as Konsa

smeserver-guardiand-1.7-3.noarch.rpm
smeserver-oinkmaster-1.2-1.noarch.rpm
smeserver-snort-2.6.0-2.i386.rpm

And did create and modify the /etc/snort/guardianlog file as cjensen suggests

I also did a chown smelog:smelog /var/log/snortd with no luck

restarting snortd does append /var/log/snortd/current...

Hello all,

A new version will be soon available.
Soon means when I have enough time.

The new version will use lastest version of snort 2.6 branch.
I'll also test more sme service feature so maybe that kind of problem will be solved.

Will be back.
Regards.
