Personally, this is yet another lesson in why it's likely to be a
waste of time trying to diagnose problems for people who do not post,
from the very beginning:

1) OS

2) snort version

3) full text of the command line used to invoke snort

4) full text of snort.conf

Without these, it's like you've gone into an auto dealership and said
"My car is making a funny noise."

What I've been trying to do is to infer what you're doing, from
generalities like "..I believe I configured the snort.conf

What does that mean? Did you, or didn't you?

When you offer only that vague sort of information, no one has any
real solid inforation to work from...
