Don,

Ok, Is your MySQL on the same machine as your Snort, and Syslog? In your
output database line, have you selected host=127.0.0.1 ? In MySQL my.ini
setup I have bind-address=127.0.0.1

On our machine we are running Snort, MySQL, and our Syslog on the same
machine.

Dallas,

Remove the -s switch and add these to your Snort.conf

output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
output alert_full

I'm still experiencing the same problem logging to a local syslog, even
with
the database logging disabled... it will only write there if i specify
the -s 127.0.0.1.  I've got a feeling I'm missing something obvious.
Any
suggestions?


Thanks,
DL

Dallas,
You need to pickup a syslog server like Kiwi Syslog Server or a freeware
one:
Snip--Snip ->
For stability I would recommend 3com's free syslog server for Windowz
http://support.3com.com/software/utilities_for_windows_32_bit.htm <--
for a bunch of goodies
ftp://ftp.3com.com/pub/utilbin/win32/3CSyslog.zip <-- for the syslog
server
It runs great on 2K & XP
This one may work:
http://www.cls.de/Default.asp
works well but randomly inserts fixed string in syslog output in
the freeware version.

Hello list. I am running Snort 1.8.7-mysql-win32 and am having the
following problem.
I would like to log to the local mysql database as well as a remote
syslog.
>From all that I can find, the only way to log to a remote syslog is
with
a -s 1.1.1.1 option from the command line. When I specify this on the
command line, snort ignores my output database statement.
Is there anyway to specify a remote syslog server within snort.conf?
What
else could be causing this problem? I'd prefer not to log to a local
syslogd then forward.
Thanks,
Dallas LaRose
<--snip from snort.conf-->
output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT
output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=blah dbname=snort
