[Snort-users] packets sent to OWN IP

Snort does not log, or even notice, packets sent to my own IP FROM my IP.

Is there a way to see these packets?

I'm on a Win2k PC. In one shell I run "snort -vd" and in another I'm running :

"ping 127.0.0.1"

or

"ping localhost"

I see the "reply from" notice:
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128

but I see no reaction out of snort. If I ping an external host, snort 
notices the packets just fine.

I apologize if someone has already asked this. is there a way to  see those 
internally sent packets? Should I be using a different application?

Thanks
