running snort

I set snort to rc.local and I see it s running as daemon. (first screenshot)

however I have to issue the command in terminal to start the service:
./snort -Q -i eth2:eth1 -c /usr/local/snort/etc/snort.conf -s
after that it works. (second screenshot)

can I dump alert or any event taken place to this terminal window or it s
impossible while snort running?

please point to the appropriate chapter in snort manual (long one) where
Decoding Ethernet is explained (and how to modify)

**one more thing: is "-h anyiphere" necessary in the line command once I
set ipvar HOME_NET variable in snort.conf?

Thanks in advance
