snort-users: [Snort-users] Unixsock plugin?

[Snort-users] Unixsock plugin?

Hi all,  

I have a question on how to use Snort unixsock plugin.  

  1. I followed the direction in the manual and added the line output alert_unixsock to snort.conf file.
  2. Then I run the snort command like this: snort -A unsock -c snort.conf and will start to get some output inside the terminal.

I was wondering if you could please let me know if I am doing this the right way or I am missing some steps?  

If I am doing this the correct way, what is it supposed to happen ultimately?  

(I made sure the /var/log/snort directory does contain the snort_alert file if it matters)    

Thanks in advance,
