    0 snort rules read

    No matter what I do with the snort.conf in 2.8.1 I can't get it to read my rule chians. I always get the following when running snort.

    Initializing rule chains...
    0 Snort rules read
        0 detection rules
        0 decoder rules
        0 preprocessor rules
    0 Option Chains linked into 0 Chain Headers
    0 Dynamic rules
    I have the rule path defined in the snort.conf file to /etc/snort/rules (which is the path that contains the extracted rule set from snortrules-snapshot-2.8.tar.gz which was downloaded right from the rules page.

    I've verified permissions on the directory and even launched it using the flag to specify the rule path

    ./snort -c /etc/snort/rules -i eth1
    I've verified that the port is running correctly in promisc mode.

    I'm stumped.

    Nevermind... I'm an idiot

    Witht he -c flag the path was supposed to be to the snort.conf not the rules dir.
