hi all

i am runnning snort with acid in RH 9 box with the command:

snort -c /usr/local/src/snort-2.0.0/etc/snort.conf -D

now when i do a test from other host to that machine(.156) by:

nmap -p 25,53 -sX -P0 -D, x.x.x.156.

Snort is showing the correct result.

Now when i do test to other macchine in the same netwrok snotr is not

I put the eth0 of the machine to promis mode by doing:

ifconfig eth0 prmisc.

But snort is not alerting traffic of my network. expect abuse to the
machine itself only.

Thanks in adv.
