Hi, I had already done something like that with the -b option, but
since I'm a newbie with this stuff so I went into the snort.conf and
commented out the DB output and uncommented the option for the
log_tcpdump option. I don't know if it will work differently.
In my time zone my job time ends in minutes and my parental duties
take over, so I don't think I'll be sending anything new till Monday
