How is the syslog configuration line formatted? Trying something like:
output alert_syslog: host=<Syslog.IP.Addr:PORT>, <log_facility> <log_severity>
Also, make sure that the syslog receiver is actually getting the syslog packets. Hope this helps.

Im issuing the command snort -d -h -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -s and on the syslog server i have syslog watcher 4.7.4 on windows 7. Then i set up a rule for rules.conf file to alert ICMP packets. When I ping from the windows machine to the Raspberry Pi the ICMP traffic is reported within the console if snort is ran with the -A console option. But when the -s option is selected it doesnt send alerts to the Syslog server. I did configure the snort.conf in the syslog section with the IP address and 514 port of the Syslog server still no dice.

Am I missing something?
