Thanks for help! I read in source files that the socket is 
/var/log/snort/snort_alert instead of /dev/snort. But if I run Snort 
with -A unsock option I get:
"/var/log/snort/snort_alert  doesn't exist or isn't writable". Is it 
because of Snort error (I know it's experimental option)? Or maybe the 
socket snort_alert must be created by other program first?
And one more question: is it possible to use two output systems? In 
example to use unix socket and normal file logging? If not, is it a good 
idea to run two snort processes (one to socket logging and one to file
