hi,

i have a 2-tier snort set up with snort and barnyard running on one
box, and mysql/acid running on another.

 i have snort configured with the following options:


snort.conf:

output log_unified: filename snort.unified.log, limit 128


and barnyard.conf configured as follows:

config hostname: localhost
config interface: eth0
output alert_acid_db: mysql, database snort, server ids.domain.com , user
snort, password snort
output log_acid_db: mysql, database snort, server ids.domain.com , user
snort, password snort , detail full

i run snort like:

/usr/local/bin/snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i eth0 -D

and barnyard like:

/usr/local/bin/barnyard -c /etc/snort/barnyard.conf -p
/etc/snort/classification.config -f snort.unified.log -g
/etc/snort/rules/gen-msg.map -s etc/snort/rules/sid-msg.map
-w /usr/local/snortlogs/barnyard.waldo

data appears in the db in almost all tables but nothing is showing
up in ACID : all acid_* tables are empty. The sensor table isn't empty :
there is one value (inserted by barnyard, not by me) which is :

sid    hostname     interface      filter    detail   encoding   last_cid
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
1      sensor       eth0            NULL     1         0             0


anybody know why acid doesn't insert something in acid_* tables?

Thanks,
