I need you help after searching a whole lot and asking AWS my problem is not getting resolved, so I have come here for your help.
I have a AWS VPC setup with all ubuntu servers
I have a NAT server created which has Snort and Barnyard installed, I followed the following guide http://wiki.aanval.com/wiki/Community:Snort_184.108.40.206_Installation_Guide_for_Ubuntu_12.04,_with_Barnyard2,_Pulledpork,_and_Aanval#Preparation
The versions used for Snort and Barnyard are the latest and not from the guide.
using the following command shows that the data is getting sniffed over the network
tcpflow -i eth0 -C -e port 80
The problem is there are no events being created in the DB and I am unable to test if Snort is functioning properly
The commands used for Snort is
/usr/sbin/snort -A fast -b -d -D -i eth0 -u snort -g snort -c /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -l /var/log/snort/eth0
The command used for Barnyard is
barnyard2 -D -c /etc/snort/barnyard.conf -d /var/log/snort/eth0 -w /var/log/snort/eth0/barnyard2.waldo -l /var/log/snort/eth0 -a /var/log/snort/eth0/archive -f snort.log -X /var/lock/barnyard2-eth0.pid
Please guys help me with this. I thank you guys in advance.
P.S. I am really new to SNORT and Barnyard2 please guide me step by step.
