Look in the etc directory in the suricata install directory.  There is a sample suricata.service file

Logging is set up in the yaml file

Hi Blason,

I have no experience with questions 1 and 2, but for question 3 I have this configuration to log all DNS activity:

  - eve-log
     enabled: yes
     filetype: regular
     filename: eve-dns.json
       - dns:
         query: yes
         answer: yes

Hi Team,

I am trying to install Suricata in IPS mode on CentOS 7. Below are the challenges I am facing and need help

I have installed suricata using default RPM
Downloaded the rules

Now I need to start Suricata using default .yaml file,

  1.  Since CentOS7 has a different interface naming scheme how do I start Suricata using systemctl?
  2.  How do I run Suricata in IPS mode to block malicious DNS queries?
  3.  How do I log DNS events in JSON so that those can be indexed in elasticsearch?
