i use snort 1.8.6 with default configuration. i have logging to syslog and mysql enabled. both works. for analysis i use acid (works also).
if i portscan a host on the subnet or the snort-server i got entrys in sylog file but none in db. so acid don't show this portscann as portscan traffic (main menu). 

syslog entry :
 --------------- snip ------------------------
May 24 12:54:34 XXXXX snort: spp_portscan: portscan status from XXX.XXX.185.188: 95 connections across 1 hosts: TCP(95), U
May 24 12:54:38 XXXXX snort: spp_portscan: End of portscan from XXX.XXX.185.188: TOTAL time(8s) hosts(1) TCP(1529) UDP(0)
 ---------------- snap -----------------------

but none in db , acid says 0% portscan traffic. 

what configuration enables the logging of portscans on db, so that acid can show it?

i you don't understand what i mean, take a lok at this pages:


thx for the help
