Easier way to try this out is make a copy of your snort.conf file and create
a new one that uses that one rule only.

I was hoping that someone could help me, I am running snort 1.9 on Win2K.  I
got it to run and on our little moch network I can see other computers
trying to get in, for example I can see a ping, or a sweep.  So I assumed
that it was working.  Then I wanted to see if I could get one of my rules to
work, so I added a rules text where all the other rules where, and gave it a
.rules extension, I made just a simple one alert tcp <ip/24>500:2000 ->
<ip/24> any.  Then in the snort config file I placed a # in front of all of
the rules listed and added a path to the rule file I made.  My thinking was
that I would recieve only instances that I specified where anything coming
from not my computer between port 500 and 2000 trying to go to my computer
by any port, but that wasn't the case, I was getting everything as I was
before, comming from any port.  It seemed A.) that my rule file wasn't
working, and B.) that all the rule files where ! activated again, WHY IS
THIS.  If anyone can help me out here it would be greatly appreciated.
