Just keep it simple to start with something like

/path/snort -c /path/snort.conf and see if u r snort machine will pickup
something, also for test purpose leave the external and home net as (any to
any ). Once working refine it as u like.

Best Regards

Hello Everyone.

  Here is my problem.

 Using  a recent snort.conf file (snort.conf,v 1.82 2002/01/20 04:35:40
roesch) I can get snort 1.8.2 to work perfectly.
However if I use the same snort.conf file, same rules, and same command
to start it up
"/usr/local/bin/snort -D -b -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -h xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24
-i eth1" with version 1.8.3 I don't get anything.
I then use a second machine to portscan (nmap) my HOME_NET, nothing
shows up in portscan.log using 1.8.3. but 1.8.2 picks up everything.

To answer the usual questions:
 I have read the FAQ, INSTALL,Changelog, and README files.
I have also searched through the archives.
I am running the  2.2.14-15 linux kernel.
I am also using libnet-1.0-1mdk, libtermcap-devel-2.0.8-16mdk,

Snort was compiled using the standard (configure, make, make install).

Did I miss something in the Documentation? The Archives? Do I need a
newer version (kernel, libraries)?

Any assistance or even guesses would be helpful.

P.S. I also tried snort-current downloaded this morning (Feb 11 2002)
with no success.
