I have just installed OSSec accordingly as the server. When it asked for my email I put in my GMail address and for the SMTP I was not sure so I just set it as localhost first. Then it runs a number of commands accordingly. Finally it states this:
In order to connect agent and server, you need to add each agent to the server. Run the 'manage_agents' to add or remove them: /var/ossec/bin/manage_agents
Another thing I did this
Starting OSSEC HIDS v2.6 (by Trend Micro Inc.)... OSSEC analysisd: Testing rules failed. Configuration error. Exiting. Started ossec-maild... Started ossec-execd... Started ossec-analysisd... Started ossec-logcollector... Started ossec-remoted... Started ossec-syscheckd...
Part of config file.
<global> <email_notification>yes</email_notification> <email_to>*****@gmail.com</email_to> <smtp_server>localhost</smtp_server> <email_from>firstname.lastname@example.org</email_from> </global> Started ossec-monitord... Completed.
So what error is it telling me about the configuration?
