[Snort-users] logging to syslog

I've tried removing -K ascii from the run line, still no information is making  it to the Syslog server.

Remove the '-K ascii' from the run line.

Before going through all the trouble of changing the actual Snort startup, net stop snort, cd to the snort/bin folder and run:

snort -c c:\snort\etc\snort.conf -l c:\snort\log -i1 -s

I'm assuming the snort.conf is set properly for syslog output.

I've been having problems with the newest version of snort not sending syslog information to our server.
I've configured snort to install using the command snort -c c:\snort\etc\snort.conf -l c:\snort\log -i1 -K ascii -s and set the syslog server's IP address in the snort.conf file. I've create a test rule to alert on any IP traffic, and can see the logs generate in the log folder, but it doesn't send to the remote syslog server. I've also tested sending the syslogs to kiwi on the local snort server and that works fine. This was working with an older version of snort. Is there any changes in the new version of snort that needs to be configured to send to syslog?
