Frank,
Out of curiosity, did you use it with 1.8??? I tried on and old copy and got
"*WARNING*: unknown output plugin "log_ascii", ignoring!". However, on my
1.9 node, it works great (I *love* having nicely organized packet files for
analysis)

Definately a needed feature, imho.

John

I use it and love it. I have a script that goes through the directory
tree and emails the alerts. That way I can look at the packet content in
email (Subject is the alert, open email to see the packet content).
Creates a ton of mail though :)
