John,  

You cannot mix command line output parameters (e.g., -A fast, -b, -s, etc.)
with output parameters in the snort.conf file (e.g., ); the command line
parameters will override those in the snort.conf file.  It is my
understanding that this functionality by design.  

If you want to log alert data to a CSV file, drop the output command line
parameter '-s localhost' and only specify the CSV output plugin in the
snort.conf file:  

    output CSV: C:\snort\log\alert.csv default  

The plugin requires two arguments: a full pathname to a file and the output
formatting option.  The output formatting option of 'default' will capture
all alert data.  Check out the snort docs for more information
http://www.snort.org/docs/writing_rules/chap2.html#tth_sEc2.5.9.  

Hope this helps.  

Christopher

John,  

Can you be a little more specific:  

Where did you get the distro of Snort?  

Was it precompiled?  

You say you're getting alerts, how do you know?  Are you also logging
somewhere else, and if so, how?  


Regards, 

Christopher
