I was using the -h to assign the home net, but I didn't change the "var HOME
..." in snort.rules.
So it was using the settings in the config file.

I'm having a problem when I put snort on a routing box. 

Snort has always been between the router and the firewall and 
I never had any problems. 

  router -------------------- firewall 

But now, I had to move snort on the firewall box and I can't get 
anything from snort. 

  router -------------------- firewall with 

It isn't alerting me for scans and things like that. It detects 
scans only when I use the preprocessor option, but without 
this option, I am not receiving the usual scan alert when I 
scan a host in my home net from a host between the router 
and the firewall. 

Any idea why ? 

Thanks, Jean-Philippe
