[Snort-users] Flow-portscan oddity

I guess I'll chime in...  Flow-Portscan seem to work ok for me but I never know what port is getting scanned.  Thoughts?

I haven't attempted the syslog method of alerting, but I doubt that's
it, being that their alerting method is centralized.  Have you generated
alerts on your own and verified them?

I've just attempted using your config with our setup, and again it did
not see my scans (and no, they did not originate from $HOME_NET).
What's your config for the flow preproc?

flow-portscan works for me.  I get between 20 and 40 alerts per hour.
The only output I use is syslog so I don't know if that makes a
difference. 

Here's the line I use: 

        preprocessor flow-portscan: alert-mode once src-ignore-net
$HOME_NET 

I'm running 2.1.2 build 25
