    Lightbulb Security sticky discussion thread

    I would like to use this thread for discussion of the HIDS / NIDS stickies at the top of these forums.

    Because I can not keep the stickies updated without assistance and feedback, this thread is intended for people to offer feedback / advice on maintaining the threads.

    Please do not use this tread for support questions, start a support thread in the security forums.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Re: Discussion thread

    Thanks for all of the hard work you have put in here over the past few days.

    I noticed today when reinstalling Snort because it wouldn't start that it was not working due to a configuration I had made. When the reinstall failed to start, I went through and commented out my new definition and then it started working.

    When at first it wouldn't work upon reinstall I filed a bug report and there were many of the same report. So, that said, this may be helpful for someone having startup issues, provided that they have added some definitions

    I, too, would like to add my thanks for all the hard work you have put into this; kudos!

    The stickies are concise and clear, with enough information to do more research.

    The information on checking logs and commonly used commands are particularly useful for someone like me; a Linux beginner.

    May I make one suggestion?

    Perhaps it might be useful to add in a link to the man pages for the commands so that people can see what parameters could be used.

    I have found these sites to be useful:

    http://www.linuxmanpages.com/

    http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/cmd/

    Thanks!

    You are most welcome.

    For the man pages see:

    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/

    There is an option to install a search engine, which will allow you to search the Ubuntu man pages from any (most) browser(s).

    Kudos to you: I noticed your work as you were updating the stickies, it must be time for a well-earned break!
