Re: pcap DAQ does not support inline

You will not be able to use the AFPacket DAQ module in that scenario. The AFPacket DAQ module manually forwards packets completely unmodified back and forth across an interface pair (or pairs) when it is in inline mode (unless Snort modifies the packet). This means there will be no routing decisions, MAC address updates, or TTL drecrements involved. Also, if you're actively having the OS do the routing (or bridging), you will end up with duplicate packets being generated by the box. AFPacket operates on copies of packets received on a given interface, and may then send out a packet based on that copy in inline mode if the packet was not dropped, all of which happens in parallel with any other processing the OS is doing with the original packet.

I'm a bit ashamed. What I cant understand is if I'm running Snort in a router and eth0 and eth1 are been used to route packages, I will not be able to use Snort inline mode with this scenario?

I tried (on a test enviroment) and it doesn't seems to work.

I think I may be doing something wrong.

eth0 and eth1 will be used by Snort only to pass traffic inline.

The third interface I mentioned earlier; eth2 will be used for management. In this case you will not be interfering with the traffic.

YM,

But if this pair of interfaces are being used to normal traffic. Example:

/usr/local/bin/snort ---daq afpacket -Q -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth0:eth1

if a database is listening on interface eth1, I cant acess this database. I cant acess anything listening on eth0 and eth1.

Will I need and a pair of 'idle' interfaces?

The two interfaces will be used by Snort, you will need a third interface for management, i.e.: ssh, database, etc.

Also don't forget to set the daq mode, look for --daq-mode

I haven't used ipfw, so i can't add on that.

Please, when you reply, reply to the entire list, everybody benefits :)

HI,

YM,

/usr/local/bin/snort ---daq afpacket -Q -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth0:eth1

I'm using this line to start snort. As I searched afpacket need two interfaces:

/"In order to have an inline deployment you need at least one pair ofinterfaces for the traffic to flow through. To that end, you need tospecify a second interface for AFPacket to use to complete the bridge."
/
But for some reason when I used two interfaces things got weired. I lost SSH acess to snort. I think that the reason is because the traffic flow through one interface to another. Do you have some clues about this issue ?

My avaliable daq modules are

pcap(v3): readback live multi unpriv
ipfw(v2): live inline multi unpriv
dump(v1): readback live inline multi unpriv
afpacket(v4): live inline multi unpriv

With module can I use to enable in line module without needing to specify two interfaces? I think that it would be ipfw, but as far as I know ipfw is for bsd and I'm not using bsd.

pcap does not support inline mode, it is meant for passive mode only. Instead, use afpacket for inline mode.

To make sure it is installed, run Snort as

snort --daq-list

This will return a list of the installed daq modules.

Subject: [Snort-users] pcap DAQ does not support inline

Hi,

I'm getting this error when running Snort in inline mode "ERROR: pcap DAQ does not support inline". I have searched on Google, but did not get any thing usefull. The point is I don't even know why this happening.

What do you suggest ?

*Some informations for debugging: *

/My daq dir is /usr/local/lib/daq

ls /usr/local/lib/daq
daq_afpacket.la
daq_afpacket.so
daq_dump.la
daq_dump.so
daq_ipfw.la
daq_ipfw.so
daq_pcap.la
daq_pcap.so

I tryed to start Snort with

/usr/local/bin/snort -Q -i eth1 --daq-dir /usr/local/lib/daq/ -c /etc/snort/snort.conf /usr/local/bin/snort -Q -de *--daq nfq* --daq-dir /usr/local/lib/daq -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
/usr/local/bin/snort  ---daq pcap -Q -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth0:eth1
/usr/local/bin/snort -Q -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth0:eth1

None of them worked.

Some more informations

/usr/lib/libpcap.a
/usr/lib/libpcap.so
/usr/lib/libpcap.so.0
/usr/lib/libpcap.so.0.9
/usr/lib/libpcap.so.0.9.4
/usr/lib/libpcap.so.1
/usr/lib/libpcap.so.1.3.0
/usr/lib64/libpcap.so.0
/usr/lib64/libpcap.so.0.9
/usr/lib64/libpcap.so.0.9.4
/usr/local/lib/libpcap.a
/usr/local/lib/libpcap.so
/usr/local/lib/libpcap.so.1
/usr/local/lib/libpcap.so.1.3.0
/usr/local/lib/daq/daq_pcap.la
/usr/local/lib/daq/daq_pcap.so/

Maybe those multiple versions of pcap are causing the error ?
