[Snort-users] Snort logging problem

I use "snort -c C:\Snort\Bin\Snort.conf -l C:\Snort\log -i1" on most of my
sensors. In snort.conf I specify to log to my remote MySQL database and it
works just fine. The -l switch doesn't override logging to a database, it
just logs in both places. I know it's just a workaround. I just stay on top
of all the alerts logged locally. I had the same issue you have but couldn't
come up with a definative answer. Hope this helps...

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort logging problem

Hi all,
I need to log Snort data to MySql. When I launch snort (under Windows XP) it
exits with an error because can't find a log directory (I use snort -de -c
C:\Ids\Snort\etc\snort.conf). In file "snort.conf" I specified that I want
to log on database and if I launch snort with -l option, logging to database
will be overriden.

How can I solve this problem?
