         Hi list, I am trying to run snort in my server firewall,
following some guides especially that of snort with centos 5 of the
site snort.org, everything one carries out with success but I don't
see that snort records alerts in the BD mysql and I don't see any
event in the log of snort...

any idea?

look my log :
