I have setup snort 2.9.4 with barnyard2-1.11 and aanval(for frontend) everything working fine in case of IPv4. but when i try snort on IPv6 it logs the alert but does not include source, destination, Hdr Len, TTL, Checksum detail on aanval fronend(infact aanval detect only that version is IPv6). It also does not shows the type of attack whether it is TCP/UDP/ICMP.

Please help

The db schema currently in uses does not support IPV6.

So i am not sure what is your need.

Also i would like to invite you to use barnyard2 users google groups
(search for barnyard2-users) to ask questions its easier to keep track of
questions and you have a wider audiance.


Thanks for reply.
So there is any other alternative to read the snort log file. So that i can understand the IPv6 logs.
