    Hello, Has anyone seen the following error in logwatch? I've manually restarted PortSentry and also checked to see if it is running as a process. At least nmap says services are running on port 1 & 111. Did a manual portsentry restart... Shut down and restarted OK. Still get this every day:

    --------------------- PortSentry Begin ------------------------


    **Unmached entries**
    1 Time(s): adminalert: ERROR: No UDP ports supplied in config file. Aborting
    1 Time(s): adminalert: ERROR: could not go into PortSentry mode. Shutting down.
    1 Time(s): adminalert: Going into listen mode on TCP port: 1
    1 Time(s): adminalert: Going into listen mode on TCP port: 111

    ---------------------- PortSentry End -------------------------

    Thanks for any input,
    Blair

    I just started getting this as well. I googled and nothing came up on this particular string, just a lot of bits unrelated. I will be waiting for any answers as well but will keep looking.

    Glad I'm not the only one.... Did a little searching in /var/log/messages and found this. Looks like PortSentry is loading a second time?
