[Snort-users] Snort 1.8.4 not logging

I have just installed version 1.8.4 and started it up in NIDS mode.
I changed to snort.conf to reflect my network and I am not seeing any logs
in the /var/log/snort directory.
The 'alerts' and 'portscan.log' files have been created but are size=0. I
have been running for over 2 hours and I can't believe my network is that
clean :-)
Are there any known problems in this area or do I need to go back and look
at my config file?
