Snort sensor is not showing in ACID?

I am new to Snort so I maight be not seeing something very basic.
I am running Snort on Windows 2000 Professional.
That is Snort 2.2.0, Acid 0.9.6b, Adodb 4.5.2, PHP 4.3.9, Mysql 4.0.21, Winpcap 3.0

When I run Snort (snort –v)  Acid is showing that sensor = 0 ?? Why is this?
In the same time I can tell that Snort is running, it is showing it’s activity in DOS and in Task Manager.
Snort.conf  “var HOME_NET” VARIABLE is set to “any”.

I did all the configuration as required except I did not edit adodb configuration file but not sure if this is connected with the problem. I red that this version of Adodb doesn’t need editing but finds adodb path automatically.

Is Winpcap misbehaving? Ther is an error at the end of Snort report. I will include Snort output bellow:

Would you have any idea why is sensor not showing in ACID?

Thanks a lot,

Marty,

I would recommend setting up a IDS box per these intructions for your first time. It will help you in understanding the basic setup steps.

http://www.winsnort.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index

It has guides for both windows or linux. mysql or mssql. apache or IIS. you choose the setup you want, and the guides show you how to get it up and running.

EXTRA NOTE:
I was using snort also, but it occured that the latest version of PHP isn't compatible with ACID. So check out this front-end:

Good Luck,

Jorden
