I ran it in this way:

snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -de -r attack-test.pcap

But it seems it doesn't process the file because i dont't see any attack info at the base web interface.

attack-test.pcap is produced by

nmap -P0 -sS -p 135,139,445,80,21,20,22 -e lo 192.168.2.4

and

snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -de -r attack-test.pcap

....

Here is the command output:
328 out of 512 flowbits in use.
TCPDUMP file reading mode.

So i may be doing some missconfgiuration.

I am using the pre-compiled snort-mysql deb file from ubuntu hardy 8.0 repo. -- Oguz Yarimtepe http://www.loopbacking.info ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Register Now & Save for Velocity, the Web Performance & Operations Conference from O'Reilly Media.
