Create a file called test.rules and insert the 3 rules below in that file
and save it to your /rules folder. Now in your snort.conf add a new include
line at the bottom for "test.rules". Now restart Snort and generate some
browser traffic and you should see all kinds of alerts in ACID being

Be sure to hash (#) out the new include line after the test is successful or
you will fill your database up. Be sure to restart Snort after you has the
line out. 

Test Rules: 

alert tcp any any -> any any (msg:"Alert: Got a TCP Packet";) 
alert udp any any -> any any (msg:"Alert: Got a UDP Packet";) 
alert icmp any any -> any any (msg:"Alert: Got a ICMP Packet";)
