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.
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.
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]# 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
What about "updatedb" follwed by "locate snort | more" ?
