Re: Replaying pcaps through Snort

Yes. The real pcap, for example, had src as 192.168.1.10 and dst as 192.168.1.15The test pcap, for example, had scr as 
192.168.2.133 and dst as 192.168.1.134  In both cases, the capture being replayed is from the source machine, and the 
rule direction was $HOME_NET -> $EXTERNAL_NET. In the real environment, this generated an alert and dropped the 
traffic. However, in the test environment, the same set of rules are not working. I had to flip the direction to 
$EXTERNAL_NET -> $HOME_NET, inluding src and dst ports. > Date: Sat, 6 Apr 2013 11:42:21 -0500

They are defined the same on both real and testing(VMs) boxes:

$HOME_NET any
$EXTERNAL_NET any

and the pcap is made from the correct side of the connection? the same side that 
snort is sniffing?


Thanks.
