View Full Version : [ubuntu] need terminal commands for snort:help!!

January 25th, 2010, 01:51 AM
I am running karmic koala with a recent install of snort 38) and i am at a loss for useful commands in solving an internal problem(within the network).All i have is `"sudo snort -v -i wlan0" on my very short list of useful commands regarding ids.
It is doing little to no good in resolving my problem with a network snoop besides showing that it is running;i need some more weight (knowledge) in order to rectify the problem;can anyone help?

Usually the flags -h or --help will provide more help. If not, you can always read the man pages
man snort

I need something more in depth;I am not getting the sequence correct and it's very frustrating.As i indicated in my initial post the only command i know is `"sudo snort -v -i wlan0" i try other commands with similar sequences such as `"sudo snort -v -i -a wlan0" and im getting errors w/ a big fat quit. In short:i really don't know what i'm doing.

Anything a little more definitive?

I do not think snort works with wireless interfaces, so that could be a big part of the problem.

There is also a stick at the top of these forums :
