  I am new to snortand  using snort-2.3.0 on windows 2k.
I tried the command in IDS mode.

C:\Snort\bin>snort -A fast -c ../etc/snort.conf

but it is quitting with the message .
Just I want to log the alerts in a single file only without packet logging.

but why I am getting this error .

[!] ERROR: Can not get write access to logging directory "log".
(directory doesn't exist or permissions are set incorrectly
or it is not a directory at all)

Fatal Error, Quitting..

Any help please...

Also what are the settings for flexresp in snort .conf and is there any 
command line options for it.
