[Snort-users] Snort in Inline Mode on CentOS 6.3

Sorry I overlooked your verdicts:

"Block:          640 (  0.008%)"

Which means Snort has blocked 640 packets out all the packets Snort analyzed.

I would start testing on more simple rules, like the icmp-protocol ping and then move on to more complex rules.

No, I haven't added the switch to my command line. Let me try that and will
let you know.
