> Hi, I just set up SNORT on my network, i have it logging to a MySQL database, and i got ACID so that i can view the alerts easily. One problem i am having is that it logs traffic from my network, which i dont want. How can i turn this off? Acid has like 500+ alerts already from one of my windows boxes saying this..

> Another thing is, i dont think its been properly setup or something, because its not logging much.. Its been running for the past 4 days, I've been connected all the time, and it only logged the local traffic, and some ICMP traffic. I got 0% TCP, 93% UDP, and 7% ICMP. Theres only like 30 ICMP alerts, and they seem pretty harmless. I am expecting alot more alerts to come in, since im always-on.

Is it connected to a switch? If it so, read FAQ 1.8
