    I am trying to configure a SNORT 2.1.3 system with MySql and Acid.  I
have it all up and running just fine right now except for one thing.  I
can't seem to get anything to register in the port scan traffic section of
Acid.  I have looked through my Snort.conf for anything and found the
flow-portscan preprocessor.  I uncommented it and configured it as follows:
preprocessor flow-portscan: \
unique-memcap 5000000 \
unique-rows 50000 \
server-watchnet [] \
server-learning-time 300 \
server-scanner-limit 50 \
alert-mode once \
output-mode msg \
tcp-penalties on

    Even with this configuration I still can't seem to get anything to
register in that particular section.  I am using superscan and scanning
various IP's on the network SNORT is watching.  Have I configured this wrong
