Are you using Demarc?

If you are using Demarc and use demarcd to start snort you will need to
configure the rules in the demarc database, using the front end.  Demarcd
pulls the latest ruleset down each time you start it, and also checks for
updates periodically, and restarts snort if the rules have been changed.

Errr...  Jeff, I'm not quite sure what you mean.  Snort _never_ writes to
config file.  Do you mean the 'command line options override config file'
message?  If so, that just means that the commandline options take
over the config file.

Hope that helps!
