can you give us more information about your setup?
What is your Suricata version, how are you installing it (do you compile Suricata?), what do you mean by opening the link - listening on a live interface?
Something seems to be off with your pcap library, maybe try upgrading that (libpcap)?
Also, have you tried proposed solutions in other seemingly duplicate posts?
In addition to what Lukas is asking -
Can you please share some details of the installation and if you are using our prepackaged MSI installer ?
Depending on the OS type (Server/Client) you need to also run the start command from a prompt with administrative privileges.
I recommend running the latest available stable - 6.0.12, and also installing the latest available npcap.
Hopefully this helps. I was expecting a GUI interface to work with and not a command line. I am really new to CLI’s (CMD, PowerShell, Linux, etc). I can navigate through a CLI with good instructions but for now that’s about all I can do.
Any assistance you can provide with links and instructions would be greatly appreciated. I am in school for cybersecurity and just wanted to monitor and protect my home network to get a real feel for Suricata and what it can do.
