This is a Repost.  Basically, snort is logging to syslog and I 
don't know how to prevent it.  

***Original Message***

I'm having a problem with Snort Version 1.7 on RedHat 7.1.  I am 
getting messages sent to syslog, but don't want them there.  Here 
is the command-line that I'm using to start Snort:

	snort -c /etc/snort/snort. -i eth0 -D

The referenced snort. has no reference to syslog in it
that is uncommented.  I didn't specifically compile (knowingly)
to use syslog.  I can't find a line in the configuration of the source
that indicates syslog should or shouldn't be used.

Otherwise, snort is working great.  It logs in binary in tcpdump format
nicely and also logs to a remote MySQL Server

Thank you in advance,
Marc Thompson
