Posted: Snort init script

Here it is!


#!/bin/sh
# Start/stop/restart snort.

# 8/30/2007 - The snort_restart function wasn't working, but an investigation ferretted out the problem: the "sleep" parameter was adjusted from "1" to "5" to give the process time to stop before starting the snort process again.

# Start snort:
snort_start() {
if [ -x /usr/local/bin/snort ]; then
echo "Starting snort daemon: /usr/local/bin/snort -devXz -c /home/snort/snort-2.6.1.1/snort.conf -i eth0"
/usr/local/bin/snort -devXz -c /home/snort/snort-2.6.1.1/snort.conf -i eth0 -D
fi
}

# Stop snort:
snort_stop() {
echo "Stopping snort daemon"
killall snort
}

# Restart snort:
snort_restart() {
snort_stop
sleep 5
snort_start
}

case "$1" in
'start')
snort_start
;;
'stop')
snort_stop
;;
'restart')
snort_restart
;;
*)
echo "usage $0 start|stop|restart"
