You should direct your question to the snort-users list, but I believe the
first thing you should try is to make sure you are running snort as root
and also you need to know that if you are launching attacks at the device
running snort, unless you disabled hardware checksum offloading, snort will
ignore the traffic due to checksum errors. It is best to run snort on a
separate device, only monitoring traffic.
