suricata.yaml (57.6 KB)

But with this configuration on mind I have added another rule in idstower_suricata.rules The below line is the configuration of idstower_suricata.rules
drop tcp 192.168.88.189 any → 192.168.88.248 23 (msg:“Telnet attempt”; sid:100001; rev:2;)
The 192.168.88.189 is my IP and 192.168.88.248 is server I have suricata and idstower IP.

But I am still able to get the telnet response. I don’t know what I am doing wrong here.

I have attached my suricata.yaml file with this email.
