Re: Home_Net, External_Net issue

Just udp....I think I have some insight.....When looking at the config Line 44 shows...
# Setup the network addresses you are protecting

We use pfsense so it modifies the config accordingly. I'm trying to find a way to change that line to ipvar HOME_NET Any

And not have it break anything within pfsense.

I'm wondering if this is a config issue or traffic setup issue. Currently my internal network the ONLY thing that ever 
shows up is portscans. I can't get anything else to be looked at. Is this due to a Home_net and External_net being 
setup wrong? My understanding is if I list Home_net to "any" then snort should monitor that traffic.

Is the traffic that you are alerting on only UDP or TCP too?
