<<< UPDATE >>>

If we traverse back a few weeks, Jed pointed out to me I this fine group, that
although this may generate copious output, It overrode my snort.conf. and
logging to my database stopped. A major downside to say the least. Needless to
say at this point... although snort doesn't complain, It is not the preferred
way to handle what I was trying to do. Now I try not to override my config
file. : )

Thanks guys, sometimes I feel so new.

--- CHAOS -Where Great Dreams Begin ---

Befor a great vision can become reality there may be difficulty. Befor a person
begins a great endeavor, they may encounter chaos.

As a new plant breaks the ground with great difficulty, foreshadowing the huge
tree, so must we sometimes push against difficulty in bringing forth our
