You can set the logging with the -l (lowercase letter L) or set it within your config file.

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort IDS doesn't log the alerts in the path /var/log/snort

Hello everyone,
I passed DARPA dataset into snort IDS to generate the alerts in the
path /var/log/snort but it doesn't log the alerts. I just see the received
and analyzed packets. I don't see how to solve such problem.
To run it on snort, I used the following command
sudo snort -r datasetName.pcap -c snort.conf
Could you please help me to solve this problem.
