    Perhaps it would help others to know that in addition to configuring the base_conf.php file, if you wish to use user authentication, you must also source the acid2base_tbls_mysql.sql in the /sql directory into your current snort database.  Then you must follow the instructions from this forum for creating an administrator account with password as the password.  However, even after doing this and setting the "Use Auth system = 1" - there was no request for a username or password.  Any help please?

    Thank you,

    Tim

    The original post was from before the user auth system was created. Sorry.

    From your message, it appears that you are going directly to base_main.php.  The login happens on index.php so you will need to go there instead. 

    For example, if you currently go to :
    http://127.0.0.1/base/base_main.php

    change it to:
    http://127.0.0.1/base/index.php

    Hi,

    I am not able to use BASE as my requirement is

    (1) I should allow a particular user to see only alerts specifc to set of ip's
    (2) he should not be able to see anything else alerts

    how this is feasible , as I have tested both ACID as well as BASE and i am unable to get this requirement fullfilled,

    pls. suggest and thanks in adv.

    Hi Guarav-

    currently neither ACID nor BASE fulfill this requirement.  The user authentication system within BASE is continually being improved and features added.  This will be one of the feature requests and the development team will look into the feasability of making this work for you.
