Bro IDS installation

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are new to Bro IDS and having some problem installing the system. Some of your documents are a bit out-dated. For example, “Bro Quick Start Guide” is dated 2004 for FreeBSD 4.10. Our box is installed with FreeBSD 7.2. We followed the guide to compile the source code, ./configure, make, make install and make install-brolite. We also manually executed the “bro_config” script to configure the system. But then executing “bro.rc start” failed and returned an error like “can’t open ……”. Could anyone provide some quick help?


Best regards,

Mike Wong
