tripwire config

I've got my tripwire set up and working great. Now, I need to set it up to run daily, and then email me the log file. Does anyone have, or can they point me in the right direction for commands?

I think I've got the daily file generation command:
#/usr/TSS/bin/tripwire -m c -t l -M

Basically, I have to have the log files where it scanned and noticed any errors.

Speaking of errors. Mine is generating an error, but I can't find it anywhere to comment it out. I have successfully commented out all other errors. However, a scan of the file, does not reveal the particular error file. Do I need to add this file, and then comment it out? The file is:


Thanks for everyones help

Use Cron:

inside cron.daily add a script like:

/usr/sbin/tripwire --check 2>&1 | mail -s "TripWire Output" root

You may need to ajust the command above to work for your system. For example the report generated by tripwore needs to be viewed with another command I believe it's:
twprint --print-report -r /var/lib/tripwire/report/titan-YYYYMMDD-HMMSS.twr

Your twpol.txt file should contain a line that reads, by default, "HOSTNAME=localhost;". Just change "localhost" to the name of your machine.
