Hi

I followed steps to install snort on windows 2003 standard edition. For this, I used method of installing snort on win xp. After installation, when I tried to run snortstart.bat file as per steps 12, it got stuck on following prompt and I cant see snort piggy as well not I am getting any output in Kiwi.

###################################################
# This file contains a sample snort configuration.
# You can take the following steps to create your own custom configuration:
#
# 1) Set the variables for your network
# 2) Configure dynamic loaded libraries
# 3) Configure preprocessors
# 4) Configure output plugins
# 5) Add any runtime config directives
# 6) Customize your rule set
#
###################################################
# Step #1: Set the network variables:
#
# You must change the following variables to reflect your local network. The
# variable is currently setup for an RFC 1918 address space.
#
# You can specify it explicitly as:
#
# var HOME_NET 10.1.1.0/24
#
# or use global variable $<interfacename>_ADDRESS which will be always
# initialized to IP address and netmask of the network interface which you
run
# snort at. Under Windows, this must be specified as
# $(<interfacename>_ADDRESS), such as:
# $(\Device\Packet_{12345678-90AB-CDEF-1234567890AB}_ADDRESS)
#
# var HOME_NET $eth0_ADDRESS
#
# You can specify lists of IP addresses for HOME_NET
# by separating the IPs with commas like this:
#
# var HOME_NET [10.1.1.0/24,192.168.1.0/24]
#
# MAKE SURE YOU DON'T PLACE ANY SPACES IN YOUR LIST!
#
# or you can specify the variable to be any IP address
# like this:

# Set up network addresses you are protecting. A simple start might be
RFC1918
var HOME_NET any

# Set up the external network addresses as well. A good start may be "any"
var EXTERNAL_NET any

# Configure your server lists. This allows snort to only look for attacks
to
# systems that have a service up. Why look for HTTP attacks if you are not
# running a web server? This allows quick filtering based on IP addresses
# These configurations MUST follow the same configuration scheme as defined
# above for $HOME_NET.

# List of DNS servers on your network

var DNS_SERVERS $HOME_NET

# List of SMTP servers on your network

var SMTP_SERVERS $HOME_NET

# Configure your service ports. This allows snort to look for attacks
destined
# to a specific application only on the ports that application runs on. For
# example, if you run a web server on port 8081, set your HTTP_PORTS
variable
# like this:
#
# var HTTP_PORTS 8081
#
# Port lists must either be continuous [eg 80:8080], or a single port [eg
80].
# We will adding support for a real list of ports in the future.

# Ports you run web servers on
#
# Please note: [80,8080] does not work.
# If you wish to define multiple HTTP ports, use the following convention

# Configure the snort decoder
# ============================
#
# Snort's decoder will alert on lots of things such as header
# truncation or options of unusual length or infrequently used tcp options
#
#
# Stop generic decode events:
#
# config disable_decode_alerts
#
# Stop Alerts on experimental TCP options
#
# config disable_tcpopt_experimental_alerts
#
# Stop Alerts on obsolete TCP options
#
# config disable_tcpopt_obsolete_alerts
#
# Stop Alerts on T/TCP alerts
#
# In snort 2.0.1 and above, this only alerts when a TCP option is detected
# that shows T/TCP being actively used on the network. If this is normal
# behavior for your network, disable the next option.
#
# config disable_tcpopt_ttcp_alerts
#
# Stop Alerts on all other TCPOption type events:
#
# config disable_tcpopt_alerts
#
# Stop Alerts on invalid ip options
#
# config disable_ipopt_alerts
#
# Alert if value in length field (IP, TCP, UDP) is greater than the
# actual length of the captured portion of the packet that the length
# is supposed to represent:
#
# config enable_decode_oversized_alerts
#
# Same as above, but drop packet if in Inline mode -
# enable_decode_oversized_alerts must be enabled for this to work:
#
# config enable_decode_oversized_drops
#

config checksum_mode: all config disable_decode_alerts config disable_tcpopt_experimental_alerts config disable_tcpopt_obsolete_alerts config disable_ttcp_alerts config disable_tcpopt_alerts config disable_ipopt_alerts config disable_decode_drops

# Configure the detection engine
# ===============================
#
# Use a different pattern matcher in case you have a machine with very
limited
# resources:
#
# config detection: search-method lowmem

config detection: search-method ac-bnfa
config detection: max_queue_events 5
config event_queue: max_queue 8 log 3 order_events content_length

# Configure Inline Resets
# ========================
#
# If running an iptables firewall with snort in InlineMode() we can now
# perform resets via a physical device. We grab the indev from iptables
# and use this for the interface on which to send resets. This config
# option takes an argument for the src mac address you want to use in the
# reset packet. This way the bridge can remain stealthy. If the src mac
# option is not set we use the mac address of the indev device. If we
# don't set this option we will default to sending resets via raw socket,
# which needs an ipaddress to be assigned to the int.
#
# config layer2resets: 00:06:76:DD:5F:E3

# Step #2: Configure dynamic loaded libraries
#
# If snort was configured to use dynamically loaded libraries,
# those libraries can be loaded here.

# Step #3: Configure preprocessors
#
# General configuration for preprocessors is of
# the form
# preprocessor <name_of_processor>: <configuration_options>

# frag3: Target-based IP defragmentation
# --------------------------------------
#
# Frag3 is a brand new IP defragmentation preprocessor that is capable of
# performing "target-based" processing of IP fragments. Check out the
# README.frag3 file in the doc directory for more background and
configuration
# information.
#
# Frag3 configuration is a two step process, a global initialization phase
# followed by the definition of a set of defragmentation engines.
#
# Global configuration defines the number of fragmented packets that Snort
can
# track at the same time and gives you options regarding the memory cap for
the
# subsystem or, optionally, allows you to preallocate all the memory for the

# entire frag3 system.
#
# frag3_global options:
# max_frags: Maximum number of frag trackers that may be active at once.
# Default value is 8192.
# memcap: Maximum amount of memory that frag3 may access at any given
time.
# Default value is 4MB.
# prealloc_frags: Maximum number of individual fragments that may be
processed
# at once. This is instead of the memcap system, uses
static
# allocation to increase performance. No default value.
Each
# preallocated fragment eats ~1550 bytes.
#
# Target-based behavior is attached to an engine as a "policy" for handling
# overlaps and retransmissions as enumerated in the Paxson paper. There are
# currently five policy types available: "BSD", "BSD-right", "First",
"Linux"
# and "Last". Engines can be bound to standard Snort CIDR blocks or
# IP lists.
#
# frag3_engine options:
# timeout: Amount of time a fragmented packet may be active before
expiring.
# Default value is 60 seconds.
# ttl_limit: Limit of delta allowable for TTLs of packets in the
fragments.
# Based on the initial received fragment TTL.
# min_ttl: Minimum acceptable TTL for a fragment, frags with TTLs below
this
# value will be discarded. Default value is 0.
# detect_anomalies: Activates frag3's anomaly detection mechanisms.
# policy: Target-based policy to assign to this engine. Default is
Windows.
# bind_to: IP address set to bind this engine to. Default is all hosts.
#
# Frag3 configuration example:
#preprocessor frag3_global: max_frags 65536 prealloc_frags 262144
#preprocessor frag3_engine: policy linux \
# bind_to [10.1.1.12/32,10.1.1.13/32] \
# detect_anomalies
#preprocessor frag3_engine: policy first \
# bind_to 10.2.1.0/24 \
# detect_anomalies
#preprocessor frag3_engine: policy last \
# bind_to 10.3.1.0/24
#preprocessor frag3_engine: policy bsd

preprocessor frag3_global: max_frags 65536 preprocessor frag3_engine: policy windows timeout 180

# stream5: Target Based stateful inspection/stream reassembly for Snort
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------
# Stream5 is a target-based stream engine for Snort. Its functionality
# replaces that of Stream4. Consequently, BOTH Stream4 and Stream5
# cannot be used simultaneously. Comment out the stream4 configurations
# above to use Stream5.
#
# See README.stream5 for details on the configuration options.
#
# Example config (that emulates Stream4 with UDP support compiled in)
preprocessor stream5_global: max_tcp 8192, track_tcp yes, \ track_udp yes preprocessor stream5_tcp: policy windows, use_static_footprint_sizes, \ ports client 21 23 25 42 53 80 135 136 137 139 143 110 111 445 465 513 691 1433 1521 2100 2301 3128 3306 8000 8080 8180 8888, \ ports both 443 465 563 636 989 992 993 994 995 preprocessor stream5_udp: ignore_any_rules

# sfPortscan
# ----------
# Portscan detection module. Detects various types of portscans and
# portsweeps. For more information on detection philosophy, alert types,
# and detailed portscan information, please refer to the README.sfportscan.
#
# -configuration options-
# proto { tcp udp icmp ip all }
# The arguments to the proto option are the types of protocol scans
that
# the user wants to detect. Arguments should be separated by spaces
and
# not commas.
# scan_type { portscan portsweep decoy_portscan distributed_portscan all
}
# The arguments to the scan_type option are the scan types that the
# user wants to detect. Arguments should be separated by spaces and
not
# commas.
# sense_level { low|medium|high }
# There is only one argument to this option and it is the level of
# sensitivity in which to detect portscans. The 'low' sensitivity
# detects scans by the common method of looking for response errors,
such
# as TCP RSTs or ICMP unreachables. This level requires the least
# tuning. The 'medium' sensitivity level detects portscans and
# filtered portscans (portscans that receive no response). This
# sensitivity level usually requires tuning out scan events from NATed
# IPs, DNS cache servers, etc. The 'high' sensitivity level has
# lower thresholds for portscan detection and a longer time window
than
# the 'medium' sensitivity level. Requires more tuning and may be
noisy
# on very active networks. However, this sensitivity levels catches
the
# most scans.
# memcap { positive integer }
# The maximum number of bytes to allocate for portscan detection. The
# higher this number the more nodes that can be tracked.
# logfile { filename }
# This option specifies the file to log portscan and detailed portscan
# values to. If there is not a leading /, then snort logs to the
# configured log directory. Refer to README.sfportscan for details on
# the logged values in the logfile.
# watch_ip { Snort IP List }
# ignore_scanners { Snort IP List }
# ignore_scanned { Snort IP List }
# These options take a snort IP list as the argument. The 'watch_ip'
# option specifies the IP(s) to watch for portscan. The
# 'ignore_scanners' option specifies the IP(s) to ignore as scanners.
# Note that these hosts are still watched as scanned hosts. The
# 'ignore_scanners' option is used to tune alerts from very active
# hosts such as NAT, nessus hosts, etc. The 'ignore_scanned' option
# specifies the IP(s) to ignore as scanned hosts. Note that these
hosts
# are still watched as scanner hosts. The 'ignore_scanned' option is
# used to tune alerts from very active hosts such as syslog servers,
etc.
# detect_ack_scans
# This option will include sessions picked up in midstream by the
stream
# module, which is necessary to detect ACK scans. However, this can
lead to
# false alerts, especially under heavy load with dropped packets;
which is why
# the option is off by default.
#
# Disabled by default

# arpspoof
#----------------------------------------
# Experimental ARP detection code from Jeff Nathan, detects ARP attacks,
# unicast ARP requests, and specific ARP mapping monitoring. To make use of
# this preprocessor you must specify the IP and hardware address of hosts on
# the same layer 2 segment as you. Specify one host IP MAC combo per line.
# Also takes a "-unicast" option to turn on unicast ARP request detection.
# Arpspoof uses Generator ID 112 and uses the following SIDS for that GID:

# SID Event description
# ----- -------------------
# 1 Unicast ARP request
# 2 Etherframe ARP mismatch (src)
# 3 Etherframe ARP mismatch (dst)
# 4 ARP cache overwrite attack

#----------------------------------------
# EXPERIMENTAL CODE!!!
#
# THIS CODE IS STILL EXPERIMENTAL AND MAY OR MAY NOT BE STABLE!
# USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! DO NOT USE IN PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS.
# YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
#
# The SSH preprocessor detects the following exploits: Gobbles, CRC 32,
# Secure CRT, and the Protocol Mismatch exploit.
#
# Both Gobbles and CRC 32 attacks occur after the key exchange, and are
# therefore encrypted. Both attacks involve sending a large payload
# (20kb+) to the server immediately after the authentication challenge.
# To detect the attacks, the SSH preprocessor counts the number of bytes
# transmitted to the server. If those bytes exceed a pre-defined limit
# within a pre-define number of packets, an alert is generated. Since
# Gobbles only effects SSHv2 and CRC 32 only effects SSHv1, the SSH
# version string exchange is used to distinguish the attacks.
#
# The Secure CRT and protocol mismatch exploits are observable before
# the key exchange.
#
# SSH has numerous options available, please read README.ssh for help
# configuring options.

# Per Step #2, set the following to load the ssh preprocessor

# DCE/RPC
#----------------------------------------
#
# The dcerpc preprocessor detects and decodes SMB and DCE/RPC traffic.
# It is primarily interested in DCE/RPC data, and only decodes SMB
# to get at the DCE/RPC data carried by the SMB layer.
#
# Currently, the preprocessor only handles reassembly of fragmentation
# at both the SMB and DCE/RPC layer. Snort rules can be evaded by
# using both types of fragmentation; with the preprocessor enabled
# the rules are given a buffer with a reassembled SMB or DCE/RPC
# packet to examine.
#
# At the SMB layer, only fragmentation using WriteAndX is currently
# reassembled. Other methods will be handled in future versions of
# the preprocessor.
#
# Autodetection of SMB is done by looking for "\xFFSMB" at the start of
# the SMB data, as well as checking the NetBIOS header (which is always
# present for SMB) for the type "SMB Session".
#
# Autodetection of DCE/RPC is not as reliable. Currently, two bytes are
# checked in the packet. Assuming that the data is a DCE/RPC header,
# one byte is checked for DCE/RPC version (5) and another for the type
# "DCE/RPC Request". If both match, the preprocessor proceeds with that
# assumption that it is looking at DCE/RPC data. If subsequent checks
# are nonsensical, it ends processing.
#
# DCERPC has numerous options available, please read README.dcerpc for help
# configuring options.

#####
# Per Step #2, set the following to load the dcerpc preprocessor
# dynamicpreprocessor <full path to libsf_dcerpc_preproc.so>
# or use commandline option
# --dynamic-preprocessor-lib <full path to libsf_dcerpc_preproc.so>

# Step #4: Configure output plugins
#
# Uncomment and configure the output plugins you decide to use. General
# configuration for output plugins is of the form:
#
# output <name_of_plugin>: <configuration_options>
#
# alert_syslog: log alerts to syslog
# ----------------------------------
# Use one or more syslog facilities as arguments. Win32 can also optionally
# specify a particular hostname/port. Under Win32, the default hostname is
# '127.0.0.1', and the default port is 514.
#
# [Unix flavours should use this format...]
# output alert_syslog: host=127.0.0.1:514, LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
#
# [Win32 can use any of these formats...]
# output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
# output alert_syslog: host=hostname, LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
# output alert_syslog: host=hostname:port, LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT

# log_tcpdump: log packets in binary tcpdump format
# -------------------------------------------------
# The only argument is the output file name.
#
# output log_tcpdump: tcpdump.log

# database: log to a variety of databases
# ---------------------------------------
# See the README.database file for more information about configuring
# and using this plugin.
#
# output database: log, mysql, user=root password=test dbname=db
host=localhost
# output database: alert, postgresql, user=snort dbname=snort
# output database: log, odbc, user=snort dbname=snort
# output database: log, mssql, dbname=snort user=snort password=test
# output database: log, oracle, dbname=snort user=snort password=test

# unified: Snort unified binary format alerting and logging
# -------------------------------------------------------------
# The unified output plugin provides two new formats for logging and
generating
# alerts from Snort, the "unified" format. The unified format is a straight
# binary format for logging data out of Snort that is designed to be fast
and
# efficient. Used with barnyard (the new alert/log processor), most of the
# overhead for logging and alerting to various slow storage mechanisms such
as
# databases or the network can now be avoided.
#
# Check out the spo_unified.h file for the data formats.
#
# Two arguments are supported.
# filename - base filename to write to (current time_t is appended)
# limit - maximum size of spool file in MB (default: 128)
#
# output alert_unified: filename snort.alert, limit 128
# output log_unified: filename snort.log, limit 128

# prelude: log to the Prelude Hybrid IDS system
# ---------------------------------------------
#
# profile = Name of the Prelude profile to use (default is snort).
#
# Snort priority to IDMEF severity mappings:
# high < medium < low < info
#
# These are the default mapped from classification.config:
# info = 4
# low = 3
# medium = 2
# high = anything below medium
#
# output alert_prelude
# output alert_prelude: profile=snort-profile-name

#
# Include classification & priority settings
# Note for Windows users: You are advised to make this an absolute path,
# such as: c:\snort\etc\classification.config
#

include classification.config

#
# Include reference systems
# Note for Windows users: You are advised to make this an absolute path,
# such as: c:\snort\etc\reference.config
#

include reference.config

####################################################################
# Step #5: Configure snort with config statements
#
# See the snort manual for a full set of configuration references
#
# config flowbits_size: 64
#
# New global ignore_ports config option from Andy Mullican
#
# config ignore_ports: <tcp|udp> <list of ports separated by whitespace>
# config ignore_ports: tcp 21 6667:6671 1356
# config ignore_ports: udp 1:17 53

####################################################################
# Step #6: Customize your rule set
#
# Up to date snort rules are available at http://www.snort.org
#
# The snort web site has documentation about how to write your own custom
snort
# rules.

#=========================================
# Include all relevant rulesets here
#
# The following rulesets are disabled by default:
#
# web-attacks, backdoor, shellcode, policy, porn, info, icmp-info, virus,
# chat, multimedia, and p2p
#
# These rules are either site policy specific or require tuning in order to
not
# generate false positive alerts in most enviornments.
#
# Please read the specific include file for more information and
# README.alert_order for how rule ordering affects how alerts are triggered.
