Hello 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. Rick S.
