Hi,

I am sure I am missing something here, but not sure what.
#snort -c /var/log/snort/rules.conf -A full -d  
works fine, but if I try and daemon it with the command
#snort -c /var/log/snort/rules.conf -A full -D
from which it does initialise as a daemon, but I see no output 
in the alert file, nor are packets captured. 

What have I missed ? 

The Operating System is freeBSD 3.4 and snort is version 1.6.3

Regards,

Jim
