All,
I have the following rule I have added:

alert tcp $MACHINE_NAME any <> any any (msg:"Activity on User's
Machine"; logto:"UserLOG.txt";)

This rule was designed to monitor all traffic from a particular
user's machine.  I have already added a var MACHINE_NAME to the
beginning of my rules list.  My question is the logto: function.  I
took that bit of info from the "Writing Snort Rules" page off of the
website.  Howvever, I am running Snort 1.6 on a Win32 machine.  I
call Snort from a batch file that reads:

%windir%\snort\win32-prj\release\snort.exe -l snort_log -c
rules.snort -A full -v.

Do I need to add anything else to my rule to ensure this alert gets
logged to the specific file?

Thanks!
Ed
