Ok,  thanks for the help guys. I tried to run snort in NIDS mode by doing this:

snort -dev -l log -h -c snort.conf     

But I got the following error:

"error. can not get write access to logging directory "log." Directory does not exist or permissions are set incorrectly or it is not a directory at all."

Well, /usr/local/bin/snort    is where snort installed on my bsd box.  The FAQs said it is supposed to be in /var/log by default. I assume this is because I'm on bsd?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
