Hello R. Thamrin,

Check your snort.conf file and make sure that you have the following

output database: log, mysql, user=your_snort_user password=password
dbname=snort host=localhost.  

I am just making a basic assumtion.  It would be helpful if you could
possibly post your snort config, so that we may further assist you.

Subject: [Snort-users] Why snort doesn't log any packet?

Hi snort users,

I installed snort version 2.x on a windows. The snort version I'm using
is bundled with Acid, MySQL, Apache, IDSCenter in an EagleX package. I'm
using default settings from EagleX.

However, when I connected my computer to a network through hub, there
was received and transmitted data but snort doesn't log any packet to
mysql database (Acid doesn't show any data). I tried to wait for several
hours but the database is still empty. It seems snort doesn't record any

Is this a know bug?

What should I do to overcome this problem?

Any hints and help would be appreciated.
