Setup for testing cross connected cable, workstation running nmap and snortbox.
Doing syn scans against one address.
snort works in packet sniffing mode.

per: http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/~rdanyliw/snort/snortdb/snortdb_faq.html#faq_b2
I changed:(not real snort.conf using config from above url).
output database: log, mysql, user=snort dbname=snort_db host=localhost password=foo


output database: alert, mysql, user=snort dbname=snort_db host=localhost password=foo

I tried adding the preprocessor for portscan

preprosessor portscan: 5 10 /var/log/portscan.log

started nmap:
ls /<datadir>/snort/*.MYD  very small and times have not changed.

mysql snortadmin(not real name)  -p
use snort
select * from iphdr


logs to me look like everything loads.
Any suggestions?
