telling broctl where to get broctl.cfg


It would be convenient if I could have the broctl.cfg somewhere other than the …./bro/etc. I have all the other local configs in another directory referred to in broctl.cfg but I would like to move it there too.

I am using using puppet to maintain all my config files and it make it a bit tidier to have them all in one place.


Since you are using a pre-build package of Bro you might just have to play with symlinks. If you build Bro you can use this option…

    --conf-files-dir=PATH config files installation directory [PREFIX/etc]
