[Snort-users] Several Questions About Snort Operation

Hi there,

I got Snort installed onto my system and when I run the binary from the shell
prompt it appears that Snort is running. The syntax that I used is:

		./snort -A full -i eth0 -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -v

There are some things that I am not sure about:

	1. I have the ACID program up and running but I am not getting
information to display on the screen.
	2. When I checked the snort_db database under MySQL there was no data.
This probably explains the situation on item 1.
	3. What, if anything, do I need to load on remote machines in order for
the Snort server to be able to check things out on them?

Essentially it appears Snort does run on my system, but there is no data being
generated within the database and consequently nothing is appearing
on the ACID console.
