Snort, barnyard2, snort pulledpork, and base IDS system Need Help

Recommended Posts


Well I learned quite a bit about Snort Network Intrusion Detection System along the way. The old tweak it till it breaks then fix it way of learning

gives one much experience. What I finally found out was this. The default pass word for barnyard2 is something like snortdb. While I thought Hmm

not a very secure password. So I added a special keyboard char of " - " and that one little dash mark turned out to be the thing that caused it to not work! And it didnt throw any errors to syslog out put. I wound up using a longer very secure password with more special keyboard chars and it threw a error, with the code line number. Thats how I found it. So if the offer is still open I finally debugged that, but still I cant seem to get any info in the Basic Analysis and Security Engine (BASE)front end, and I am not sure how to check the MySQL data base to be sure that the data is getting transferred there. Any suggestions please?

Yes, I meant completely starting over from scratch and following one guide. It is hard to troubleshoot anything when you follow numerous guides setting things up.
