[Snort-users] Portscan detection

I have set up snort on a win2k box.

I use the rules that you pr. default can download from the snort website, and according what I can read from the website it already makes an alert when someon is portscanning me.

Anyway, I did a test with a portscan with these settings, and snort did not log anything to the alert file. 

By reading the rule files, I can see that it looks for a connection on 3 diffrent ports within 3 seconds or something like that! I set it up to 10 seconds, but still no alert!

Anyone have any idea why it's not loggin the portscan!

Any feedback would be nice.


Keep cool
