This is a new error, I figured out the old on.
ERROR: snort.conf(285) => Invalid file name for IIS Unicode Map file.
Fatal Error, Quitting..
preprocessor http_inspect: global \
iis_unicode_map unicode.map 1252
This is a brand new snort.conf, one I haven't messed with. And I checked /rules and it does contain unicode.map.
Thanks, oh and I never new you could vi straight to the error with a +<line#> ... very cool.
