[Snort-users] Snort and acid prob!!! Acid not running :(

Look at your action stats.  Snort didn't log any data.  Start snort as a
daemon service with the -D switch.  Then check /var/log/messages to make
sure its loading the rules.  You'll find it reports the number of rules
loaded at the end.  If its loading them all then leave it up and running and
get yourself a port scanner and scan your sensor.  You might also try
running a vunderability scan on the sensor with the MS baseline scanner.
Either should trigger rules.

plz help me urgently.

I have installed snort-2.0.2 with acid 0.9.6b23 on redhat 9. I think i
followed all the steps correctly. and when i run :
snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
i get the following output at the end:

Snort analyzed 471 out of 471 packets, dropping 0(0.000%) packets

Snort exiting

Now...when i start the httpd interface, i get 0 alerts, 0 sensors, 0 %
UDP, 0% TCP.....as though it is inactive.
I am connected on LAN of 50 PCs.
Please tell me how to correct it.
Hoping for an urgent reply.
Thanking you
