[Oisf-users] Suricata does not start in NFQ mode

Jason is right. You should only use the -q to define the queue to listen on for packets. You can have multiple -q, one for each queue you have defined with iptables/nftables.

Hi James,

I have not used nfq mode myself in a long time, but read further inline...

I believe with NFQ you do not specify an interface with -i.  -i tells
Suricata to use pcap mode on that interface.  With NFQ, Suricata
doesn't need to know which interface to listen on, that would be setup
with the iptables tools.

Hope that helps,
