Hey All,

Yesterday I changed my snort config to log its info to a Mysql database. Are
portscans now logged to the database or to the /var/log/snort/portscan.log
file ?, 
because when I purposely portscan my machine form another machine (using
nmap) it picks them up in ACID ??. 

Second question (semi-OT) : I am running ACID v0.9.6b21 and when I portscan
my box using nmap (tcp or udp scan) the status page says that the have
been no portscans  Anyone experiencing the same thing ?.
