The new file is being shared on the Sourceforge mirrors as sguil0-6-0p1_freebsd6-0_1280_06jan06.zip. I noticed this OSDN mirror already has it. The new .zip is 218 MB, and it expands to about 700 MB. The VM disk is 1280 MB (1.25 GB) and it is built with 128 MB RAM.
The new VM is nearly identical to the previous VM. Use the same user accounts, network settings, etc., as previously described. There are two exceptions:
- I have added of the Sguil client components. This means you can either connect to the server using your own Sguil client, or log into the new VM as user analyst, run 'startx', and find yourself in a graphical Fluxbox environment.
- I have added tools used in my Network Security Operations class, mentioned in this post.
I built the VM using my new installation script described here.
For those who wish to build their own VM, I made the following additions beyond what the script does.
When I first boot the machine, I enter single user mode and create a /boot/loader.conf file with the line 'hint.apic.0.disabled=1'. I still seem to have troubles with time in the VM, although this post seems to indicate the latest VMware combined with 6-STABLE might improve the situation.
I next install Vmware Tools for FreeBSD. This allows a large display at 1024x768. Inside VMware, I follow VM -> Install VMware Tools -> Install. Next, on a local console as root:
tar -xzvfp /cdrom/vmware-freebsd-tools.tar.gz
If I need to re-run the configuration, I can try /usr/local/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl.
I also edit /etc/motd so the users see the following at login.
Welcome to the Sguil Virtual Machine!
Richard Bejtlich (firstname.lastname@example.org) created this VM to
help those new to Sguil (www.sguil.net) become familiar with
Sguil components and operation.
To start Sguil server components, do the following.
As user sguil, execute these scripts:
As user root, execute these scripts:
To start the Sguil client, do the following.
Log in as user analyst. Run startx to launch Fluxbox.
Launch a xterm, then run /home/analyst/sguil_client_start.sh.
Note: Thanks to transltr for pointing out that the motd as installed in the VM says to run /root/start_sancp.sh and /root/strt_snort.sh. That will be fixed in the next release.
The VM as provided uses space as follows:
$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a 124M 56M 58M 49% /
devfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev
/dev/ad0s1g 62M 76K 57M 0% /home

/dev/ad0s1e 124M 24M 90M 21% /var
/dev/acd0 6.9M 6.9M 0B 100% /cdrom
Notice /usr is pretty tight. /nsm is small too. This is a demonstration VM, not a production version. Following my scripts you can easily create your own VM though,

If you can wait to download the client from Sourceforge, that will make like easier for my hosting company.
