Hello, has anyone successfully made Snort alert to unix socket, with
connection to some other program?

I am trying to connect Snort and Logstash. Snort is sending alerts to
'/var/log/snort/snort_alert' and Logstash is reading the same socket.

I have tested that Snort is really sending these sockets with perl
script, and I am able to receive sockets in Logstash with 'nc -U

However i am unable to receive Snort sockets in Logstash. Any help is
