I have snort up and running. If I do a snort -v it works fine. When I do

snort -d -h -l /var/log/snort -c
/var/tmp/snort-2.3.0/etc/snort.conf I get the following. I am new at
unix and any help would be appreciated. 


# cd ..
# snort -d -h -l /var/log/snort -c
Running in IDS mode
Log directory = /var/log/snort
