Im not too sure about the exit problem, but I use ACID (Analysis Console for 
Intrusion Databases) and a MySQL server to store all my IDS data. Then I can call up 
the ACID database and look through all the garbily gook that snort puts out(Keep in 
mind that this is importiant garbily gook :-P).

I belive there is a link on the snort website that has documentation for this type 
of setup. 

Let me know if you need aditional help ..


And, Good luck with the Exit Error problem :)
