Dear all I've installed Snort, but can't find the snort.conf file in both /ect/ and /usr/local/ (and don't have snort directory in these location as well) Do you know where's the snort.conf My version is 2.8.6

Without configure options check /var/snort/install/snort-2.8.6 or below it. You can also run find / -type f -name snort.conf which will take a minute or 2.

I've found it using your find command. It's under source code folder :). Thank you very much – Thang Nguyen Jul 8 '10 at 4:06
