Testing Snort 2.7.0 Beta 1

After reading a news from Snort website, I grab the latest beta version of Snort 2.7.0 beta1.

Then I build the RPM packages from it using the following command :

$ rpmbuild –with mysql -ta snort-2.7.0.beta1.tar.gz

Next, I install it to my system :

# rpm -Fvh rpms/RPMS/i586/snort-2.7.0.beta1-1.i586.rpm \
rpms/RPMS/i586/snort-mysql-2.7.0.beta1-1.i586.rpm

I rename the existing conf file and the new one :

# cd /etc/snort/
# mv snort.conf snort.conf.old
# mv snort.conf.rpmnew snort.conf

I do self-test for the new snort :

# snort -T -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
Running in Test mode with config file: /etc/snort/snort.conf
Running in IDS mode
