Subject: [Snort-users] logging to syslog

Is there a way to log alerts to the /var/log/secure file instead of the
/var/log/messages file? 

 I am using redhat 7.2  snort 1.8.3-5 
and the following commandline in /etc/init.d/snortd:

	daemon /usr/sbin/snort -l /var/log/snort -d -D \
		 -i $INTERFACE -c /etc/snort/snort.conf

 /etc/snort/snort.conf is configured to log to syslog 

 output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT

but the messages end up in the messages file
and i want them to go to the secure file as they did in snort 1.7.

Thank you
