Ok.. that's good. I know it was a genaric response, but I was in the

the snort.conf?

Daw 2 should be fine, the errors you had been getting where snot.conf
errors.  If DAQ throughs an error, you'll know.  haha

So Snorts working, good.  a always like to add the output to an alert

do the unified2 part and remove the syslog/text file when I'm done.

Have fun and keep playing!
