[Snort-users] Alert OR syslog?

In your command line, your doing binary logging (-b), full logging (-A 
full) and syslog (-s).
I haven't tried todo both syslog and FULL (waste of time?).

When I run it with the following command snort seems to run fine:

/usr/local/bin/snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -I -A full -s blame_cmg -i rl0

So give that a try, im not sure why someone wants 3 logging mechanisms, 
but hey!

(sorry cmg for the syslog part :-)) <grin>

The secret to success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching.
