Tim, I'm in the same boat as you and won't be able to go to 1.9.0 until this
is figured out, since I don't know much about programming, I sent the log.c
file of to a programmer I know to see if he can tell me what to change.

Time to see who is quicker, the list or my friend! :-)

I posted this awhile ago to find out how to change this in 1.8.x. Someone
was kind enough to help me out then. Unfortunately in 1.9 I have not been
able to find out how to change the format. So....

Here is my original message as it describes exactly what I am trying to

I run snort on a Linux box and then take the /logs directory tar it and ftp
it to my Windows workstation to view the logs and the alert file. The
problem is that the file format under the IP address directory is
TCP:xxxx-xx. Windows chokes on the :. Is there an option to change this
format? If so, where?
