[Snort-users] Snort and IPTables?

I was wondering if snort only works with ipchain's and not with iptables.

Has anyone got it to work with iptables? I'm currently using 
shorewall-1.1.7 to manage iptables and I haven't been able to get it to log 
anything. I created a the following test rule....

alert tcp any any -> any any (msg:"TCP test rule";)

and it seemed to like that fine and detected all the packets sent with the 
sample attack script but removing the rule didn't trigger any of the other 
default snortrules.
