[Snort-users] Alerts and packet capture - MYSQL

I am using snort 2.0 to capture data based on a custom rule: 

alert tcp $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET :1024 (msg:"Syn


and logging this information to a MySQL database.  I then want to look
through this data to see if a synack is sent back (aka a complete
handshake/connection).  I am capturing additional packets as well.  When I
try and view the additional packets in snort I am only getting the packet
that triggers the rule not the extra packets that were captured.  Is there a
way to view this information with acid or am I stuck doing it by hand. 


Also is there a way to right the rule such that it won't trigger if I don't
get a synack back?  Does ACID already do this and I am missing something?  A
little advice from the snort guru's and everyone else would be nice :-).


Thank you,


Jacob Snow
