Forum Thread: Snort Working Differently?

Hello dear community,

I recently downloaded and installed snort because I wanted to scan my network for keywords (OTW Tutorial fitted exactly).

The problem is, every time I run snort -vde -c /etc/snort/snort.conf, snort doesn't seem to search for the keywords I set (for example I don't get the detection message just a lot of packages.

Any ideas how to fix this?
