Hi Members,

I'm facing problems when I run snort with

sudo /usr/local/snort/bin/snort -u snort -g snort -c
/usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -i eth1

command. I followed the http://www.snort.org/assets/158/snortinstallguide293.pdf
guide and it seemed to work but I got the error message at the end:

ERROR: spo_unified2.c(321) Could not open /var/log/snort/snort.u2.1365276051:
Permission denied
Fatal Error, Quitting..

There is no traffic yet on eth1 but I think this issue is related to the log
somehow.

your snort user and/or group do not have write permissions to /var/log/snort... 
what are the permissions of that directory? fix those and you should be ok...
