Try running snort from the command line to display packets (like
tcpdump), make sure to sniff from the same interface you are using in
snort.conf, make sure you see bidirectional traffic.
Also, make sure you uncomment the rule catagories you want to use, I
think its near the bottom of snort.conf, I believe there is an icmp
rule set that is noisy.
