[Snort-users] Running Snort in Windows XP

To whom it may concern,

I installed Snort in my PC which is not connected to any network other than 
that of the Internet through a dial up connection.
In order to start it in sniffer mode I run cmd.exe and then I type snort -v. 
In order to generate some traffic I type a web address in the explorer like 
www.snort.org. What I see after that in the cmd window is a list of IP 
headers ( I assume) but I do not get any page in the Internet Explorer. It 
is like snort is successfully monitoring the packets but it does not let 
them get to the Internet explorer so that I can see them.
What can I do so that I run SNort in sniffer mode AND I see the content of 
the pages I enter to?

Yours sincerely,
George Sakatzoglou
