[Solved] snort's ERROR: Invalid argument: preprocessor Fatal Error, Quitting..

#1
ERROR: Invalid argument: preprocessor Fatal Error, Quitting.. can be solved by ommiting extra \ 
Code:
 
# SSH anomaly detection.  For more information, see README.ssh
preprocessor ssh: server_ports { 22 } \
                  autodetect \
                  max_client_bytes 19600 \
                  max_encrypted_packets 20 \

so that it looks like 
Code:
# SSH anomaly detection.  For more information, see README.ssh
preprocessor ssh: server_ports { 22 } \
                  autodetect \
                  max_client_bytes 19600 \
                  max_encrypted_packets 20
The next error i encountered was "Snort\rules\white_list.rules, Error: No such file or directory
Fatal Error, Quitting..". To solve this issue create a file called white_list.rules & blacklist.rules if they don't exist.
 
Code:
   whitelist $WHITE_LIST_PATH\white_list.rules, \
   blacklist $BLACK_LIST_PATH\blacklist.rules
