[Snort-users] Snort Installed fine but daemon will not run

Looks like it's starting and running without quitting now. Before, it would stop and I wouldn't see a PID. I wanted eth1 to be promisc mode, I did ctrl+x or v I don't remember to get out.

Thank you,
Jimmy L Ford

When you started snort with the service command, you got a command
prompt back, correct? So you are not breaking/stopping the process to
view the log.

We can see that it starts at Aug 22 12:54:35 (And eth0 goes promisc)
but what happened here at Aug 22 12:54:35 to make eth0 go out of
promisc mode?

As soon as it starts do you see the pid that it lists with the process
in 'ps'? - ie:  snort[6933]  <--  6933 is the pid
