Snorby - Full Packet Capture
From: "johnny.venter" <johnny.venter () zoho com>

I have the following setup:

(1) Snort v2.9.4 sensor running on Ubuntu 12.04LTS. I use Barnyard 2.1.11 to process unified2 logs to MySQL Server 
(1) Snorby v2.61 instance running on Ubuntu 12.04LTS.

I'm trying to enable full packet capture within the Snorby interface.  I *just* watched video from https://snorby.org/ 
on the home page that depicts the ability to generate/download the packet session.

What I've done:
I followed the instructions and installed the packages from: 
on my Snorby instance (which is a *separate*) system from my Snort instance.

After the above install succeeds (I ran , I restart Snorby using the commands: "bundle exec rake snorby:setup" & 
"bundle exec rails server -e production".  Snorby runs without any issues and I can see alerts.  After configuring 
OpenFPC from (http://leonward.wordpress.com/2010/12/06/insta-snorby-0-4-with-openfpc/), I can download packets.  
However, all of my pcap files are 24 bytes in size and they are empty when I view them in Wireshark, it states No 

Is this because I have the Snort and Snorby on 2 different systems?  Or something else?
