    Default Snort

    I know BT3 is still in BeTa and may contain SNORT in final release. Is there a way to install snort on BT3 BeTa?
    Any info, steps , or link will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Have you tried the snort site? or installing it yourself?

    Yes, i tried that.

    I am able to complete Step 3 without any error but i cannot find
    where it is installing snort as it states at the end of step 3.
    /usr/local/bin/snort


    I was following the following steps.

    _____________

    1. Download the latest source from Snorts Web Site

    2. Unzip and Untar the source file. This will unpack the tar file to a snort directory

    [root]# tar -zxvf snort.tar

    3.Compile the source

    [root]# cd snort-
    [root]# ./configure
    [root]# make
    [root]# make install
    [root]# make clean

    This will install snort /usr/local/bin/snort by default



    4. Create the configuration directory and copy the configuration files over. This assumes you are in the snort directory

    [root]# mkdir /etc/snort
    [root]# cp -rf etc/* /etc/snort
    [root]# cp -rf rules/* /etc/snort

    5. Customize your snort.conf to meet your needs. This is a configuration I have found to be useful

    [root]# cd /etc/snort
    [root]# vi snort.conf
