I'm trying to get my snort data to splunk. I've installed the universalfowarder on the snort box,

monitoring /var/log/snort/snort.log

Here is some information from the Forwarder

etc/system/inputs.conf

[monitor:///var/log/snort/snort.log]

host = snort

sourcetype=snort_alert_full

etc/system/outputs.conf

[tcpout]

defaultGroup = 10.1.57.198_9514

disabled = false

[tcpout:10.1.57.198_9514]

server = 10.1.57.198:9514

[tcpout-server://10.1.57.198:9514]

netstat -a

tcp 0 0 snort.ntwk:59892 10.1.57.198:9514 ESTABLISHED

But I'm not seeing anything in Splunk Web Search. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks for looking.

The key is the -K parameter. In my case I used -K ascii

/usr/sbin/snort -K ascii -c /etc/snort/snort_eth2.conf -l /var/log/snort_internet -i eth2
