Re: Snort Start up error

I've run into this a time or two myself when I had commented out
something above, where the line before what I'd commented out wasn't
fully terminated (i.e. had a "\" at the end to indicate multi-line
config). I'd take a look at what's directly above the line for
including your classification.config (probably the IP rep
preprocessor), and see if you accidentally messed something up there.



Also, verify that this directory
exists: /usr/local/snort/rules/black_list.rules



If not, then: sudo touch /usr/local/snort/rules/black_list.rules



In /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf, verify that this line:



var BLACK_LIST_PATH ../rules



to



var BLACK_LIST_PATH /usr/local/snort/rules
