Hi Doug,
I had a question - it's related to S-Guil as opposed to SecurityOnion but maybe you can point me in the right direction?
I am following the directions at
the following prompt in Xterm:
I enter
su - root.
It asks for a password so I reply with
The system prompts me with
Taosecurity:/root# so I respond with
and it responds with Command not found and puts me back at the root command. I have tried the rest of the commands and
/usr/local/bin/ restart and in both cases it again, tells me the command is not recognised.
I posted to a Sourceforge forum but since that forum hadn't been answered in 6 years, someone suggested that I try your SecurityOnion site.
Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong, please or direct me towards a good forum?

Many thanks
Justin Forde.
