> Hello All,
> Snort newbie here. I recently installed Snort on a Windows 2008 R2 (x64) box with MySQL back-end and am using barnyard2 for log processing and parsing. When I run snort in packet sniffer mode (-v), I can see all the traffic coming through on the spanned switch port. However, when I switch snort into active mode with the –l switch, noting gets written into the log file. I’ve reviewed the instructions I have for installing snort on a Windows box and appear to have followed all the steps correctly, the snort.conf, and have even run snort in test mode (-T) and nothing appears amiss.

It would help us the most if you were able to post your snort.conf and our command line for Snort to run.

I'd recommend using Snort not on a Windows box, but that's just my 0.02.
