Hello James! Thank you for reply.

I forgot to mention that I compiled Snort (along with daq and libdnet) 
latest version from www.snort.org. But with the same effect.
It was in "previous Ubuntu Server's life". Also from scratch. Recipe 
I've found in "assets" on snort.org.

But... I wanted to ask you, do you run Snort in inline mode? :-) I begin 
to think that the matter is in Snort, system or IPTables
configurations. That I need to set up something else, besides Snort.

Kind regards,

Keep in mind it’s not going to be pretty as you’ll most likely have to rip out the current Snort.
