It sounds like you need to do one of three things:

  1.  Run snort inline


  1.  Span your network traffic so that it is copied to snort for inspection


  1.  Use a hub (if you could even find one) ☺ ☺

Your regular network switch wont send traffic destined for another host to your snort machine by default.
