[Snort-users] Intrusion Detection with Snort

I'm using snort-1.6.3-patch2.

What is the correct command line to make snort act as an intrusion detector.

I ran with "snort -d -l /var/log/snort -M machines -c snort-lib" and then
from another subnet, I did a nmap -sT -O host, but snort didn't give any
alert! :-(

I've already changed the HOME_NET variable to my network (It is not a class
C network, it's a /27 subnetwork, does that has anything to do?).

Thanks for any answer, since I'm getting desperate...
