running snort 2.1.2(Build 25) on openbsd with bridging(on sensor side) and packetfiltering(management side)
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?
