Hi Shaiming,
Can you share a pcap example please?
Can you test with last snort v2.9.2 please?
Can you try with default snort.conf with minimal change?
Can you post your snort.conf + pcap + snort cmd line + snort verbose output ?
Can you post a rule + pcap describe exactly your pb please?
Happy Detect with Snort / Suricata / Bro.
Merry Christmas everyone.
