[Snort-users] snort running as daemon while sysloging

Make the changes in your snort.conf file and use the S99snort file that
comes with the RPM and or source to start it.  Make sure you edit the
S99snort (you will have to change the path to the snort binary and the
snort.conf file) and give it +x.  This is the way I have done it before?

Subject: [Snort-users] snort running as daemon while sysloging

Hello all,
	I want snort to start at boot as a daemon on Fedora Core 2
(redhat). I want it to log its alerts in /var/log/snort/ (which already
exists) in syslog format. I've pieced this together from what I've found
on the net...

/usr/local/bin/snort -l /var/log/snort -D -h xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xxx -c

I look in /var/log/snort/ and nothings happening. 
Although, I've found somethings in /var/log/messages, regarding snort's
initialization but not much else.

This snort.conf file is stock, and for the most part, unchanged from the
initial install.
I've google'd and I've read through the man's.

Am I going in the right direction? Any suggestions?
