Wkitty, thank you for your input. I'm newer to the list so I'm not sure what
I did wrong:

" also, please remember to start your own thread/topic by using the "write
new message" option instead of replying to someone else's thread/topic...
this way, you don't hijack their discussion and it makes it easier for
others to see your discussion... some of us will block/filter/ignore certain
topics after a certain time and if you try to tag along on that topic, your
posts will be missed..."

Don't we just have to send a new email to snort-users at lists.sourceforge.net
to start a new thread? Sometimes I will reply to an email and erase the
subject and content - thinking this creates a 'new' email; does this cause a
problem?

Thanks again,

Steve

you only need to install the other tools and ensure that they can find your
snort's unified2 output file which you need to configure in your
snort.conf... 
those tools, like barnyard2, will take the data from the U2 (unified2) log
file and insert them into the database... whatever database you choose to
use and that they support...

also, please remember to start your own thread/topic by using the "write new

see your discussion... some of us will block/filter/ignore certain topics
after a certain time and if you try to tag along on that topic, your posts
will be missed...
