[Snort-users] ACID displaying 0 Sensors

That is normal until you get an alert,

Are you on the same network as the sensor.  If so you may need to add an
alert in order to get ACID to display a message.  You need to
etc/rules/local.rules file and add this line:
alert ip !$HOME_NET any -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"LOCAL ACIDTEST";)

This should generate tons of alerts in acid,

good luck

Subject: [Snort-users] ACID displaying 0 Sensors

My apologizes if my question is amateurish, but I am having difficulty in
configuring my ACID console to display alerts. ACID seems to be working
(MYSQL database & snort appear to also be working) but I have a big " 0
sensors" displaying through the console?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
