When trying a very simple script found in Seth Hall's Bro Junk Drawer , I cannot get ActiveHTTP to even perform a successful GET request. I'd like to use ActiveHTTP to do RESTful POSTs for a notice or given behavior.
Mac OS X output:
Mac OS X 10.11.2, Bro 2.4.1 (installed from Homebrew), curl 7.43.0
CentOS 7.1.1503, Bro 2.4.1 (installed from OpenSuSE build service), curl 7.29.0
This is only a problem if you allow Bro to shutdown immediately. We don't always develop for that scenario since it represents such a minor use of Bro.
bro active-http-test.bro exit_only_after_terminate=T
That fixed the problem. Might add that the documentation of the ActiveHTTP module or other modules that have a race condition during interactive use of Bro.
