Hey Jeffrey,

As i mentioned in another posting I was also working on getting snort
2.8 up and running on honeywall. Had some other stuff to do and I hope
this solution is not just working for me.

I hope you are aware that appendepoch and the existing nostamp are
just the same. So instead of patching redundancy into the source code
i suggest simply changing "appendepoch 0" to "nostamp" in snort.conf
Actually it took a while till i figured it out.
Patch appended for the lazy people

> All,
> Attached is a patch for snort which enables it to work with hflow2.  Download snort source, cd to the directory snort_root_directory/src/output-plugins.  From there run:
> patch -p0 < spo_unified.c.patch
> Then build and install snort as normal.  You will also need a new snort.conf; I've attached mine.  The only part of snort.conf that different from the default is the alerting/logging.  Your snort.conf may be different depending on your configuration.
> I've managed to get this to work for me, but it might not for you.  Let me know if you have any problems.
