[Snort-users] guardian

I would start by getting snort to log events to /var/log/snort/alert.
Gaurdian won't do anything if it doesn't see anything happening in that
(or the specified) log.

Has snort ever logged events or is this a new occurance with the
introduction of Gaurdian?  Verify that the HOME_NET and EXTERNAL_NET
settings are correct in your snort config file.  

Gaurdian log locations are specified in gaurdian.conf.  The default
location is /var/log/guardian.log,  but if gaurdian.conf is missing these
settings it will log to STDOUT.

ipchains will log events if you add "-l" to the chain rule.

Hope this helps.
