It is not connected to a switch. its connected to a hub. I will get that plug and play disabled. but thats not what the problem is, the problem is that it log's local traffic, and i would like to make it not log local traffic. How do i do that? And also, it doesnt seem to log much from the outside because i didnt get much alerts at all when it ran 4 days striaght. I jsut got some ICMP's from my ISP's DNS servers, and some other ip which came from my ISP's subnet. Could it be that my firewall is blocking everything before it gets to SNORT? let me know. Thanks.

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..

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.
