[Snort-users] PID file

Thanks for your reply.

I am using the following command to run the process as daemon:
/usr/local/bin/snort -di eth1 -h 192.168.100.0/24 -l /var/log/snort -c
/etc/snort/snort.conf -s -D

But it looks like Snort runs but does not seem to be running as daemon in
the background. I can see the process run from the "ps -ef" output and get
the following output and just sits there and no pid file is created.

Regards,
