I am new to snort. I would like to run it in IDS mode. so I used

snort -D -s -c /etc/snort/snort.conf

Its the stock snort.conf.

In syslog it says it initialized fine.
How can I test it? I would to know that it works and will log alerts to
syslog. Is there a way that I can generate an alert to prove its worth?
thanx for your time.
