iv'e been trying to get snort and barnyard to work properly over ppp0. The problem is that it doesnt output anything to the log file.
My plan is to have snort monitor ppp0 for intrusions and allow hosts to connect over eth0 to view the logs

slackware with snort, barnyard and acid
eth0 - local network
ppp0 - internet
mysql and http are bound to eth0
firewall is turned off

when i run
$snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -i ppp0 -g nogroup -D
$barnyard -c /etc/snort/barnyard.conf -d /var/log/snort -f snort.log
i dont get anything in /var/log/snort
but when i tell it to listen to eth0 everything works fine

i have tried fiddling with the config files, but still no luck
eg: in snort.conf
var HOME_NET any (also tried
eg: in barnyard.conf
config interface: ppp0

can anyone elighten me on what program should be listening on what interface
the way i see it is that snort and barnyard should listen on ppp0 and mysql and http are on eth0

any ideas??? thanks.
