You may already be doing this, so don't take offense if you have!  When you
see an alert for spp_portscan, and click on the IP address, you won't see
portscan data.  You will only see the data for that alert - and since the
portscan data isn't kept in the alert itself, it isn't shown here.  After
clicking on the IP address for which a portscan alert was generated, you
need to click on "Portscan Events" towards the top of the screen.  It's in
the middle of a list like:

all alerts with as : source | destination |
show: unique alerts   |   portscan events 
Registry lookup (whois) in: ARIN | RIPE APNIC
External: DNS | whois | SamSpade

If you're already doing this and not getting data, you may want to check
permissions on your portscan.log file to make sure your apache user (or
equivalent) has read access.
