Hi Can anyone help with this,?

I keep getting this trying to config snort on windows xp

Initializing rule chains...
ERROR: C:\snort\etc\snort.conf(507) Unknown rule type: snort.
fatal Error, Quitting..

this shows that the error is detected at line 507 of your snort.conf file... 
please post your snort.conf so we can take a look at it...



C:\snort\bin>snort.exe -i1 -s -l C:\snort\log\ -c C:\snort\etc\snort.conf -T

that command line should be ok... your problem(s) is(are) in your config file...
