[Snort-users] Still trying to build this box

Hello Waldo Kitty,

I watched a youtube video where the guy was able to test his logging by pinging websites.


Is this no longer an activity that can be logged?

I suspect that I have successfully installed Snort.  I would like to know if it is working before I deploy the box on a network.

Is there any way to verify that everything is working perfectly?

what are you expecting to log? snort will only log traffic that creates
alerts... regular/normal traffic should not create alerts... it only ran for 90
