[Snort-users] Logging to Both Syslog and MySql

What has to be done is to recompile the snort code ....  Or get a copy of
the recompiled Snort code that tells snort not to override other outputs
when starting with the -s switch...  And then start snort from the command
line with -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:514  I might still have a copy of the
recompiled snort.exe lying around somewhere if you're interested.  However,
with the recompiled version, I couldn't start snort as a service, so I
choose not to use it!!

Subject: [Snort-users] Logging to Both Syslog and MySql

I know this subject has been covered before..I have tried to do my homework
by searching the archives but I still don't seem to be able to find the
answer to this issue.

I am running the 1.8 version of snort on Windows 2000 server and I am
trying to log both to a remote MySQL database and a remote syslog server
with the following config in my snort.conf file

output alert_syslog: LOG_AUTH LOG_ALERT host=

output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=snort dbname=snort
host= sensor_name=ids1

 I do get information in database but not my syslog server, what am I
missing ? Is this possible ?

Thanks for any help in advance
