In "/etc/suricata" directory no "rules" directory existed and I created a shortcut for it:

Code: Select all

# ln -s /usr/share/suricata/rules/ /etc/suricata/
But, the problem existed. Any idea?

Thank you.

Read the docs? https://suricata-ids.org/docs/

You might also consider installing from EPEL.

Source installs are not supported here.

And https://redmine.openinfosecfoundation.o ... tart_Guide has
Step two

After downloading and installing Suricata, continue with the Basic Setup. During the Basic Setup you create a directory for Suricata and its configuration files. You learn to start the engine for the first time, and to see if you made it already run correctly.

Step three

Of course Suricata needs rules to do its job. To learn more about rules, how to use and install them, read the information in Rule Management with Oinkmaster.

In the config file, I set "default-rule-path: /usr/share/suricata/rules/" and got below message:
