OK, wait a minute... Is this snort sensor on the same box as everything else
(apache, your browser, etc)? Or is it something that lurks on your network?

If it's a separate box, how did you forward the port? Because if you told just
told it to forward to 127.0.0.1, that's the loopback address for itself, and the
info will go nowhere.

Without giving away anything sensitive, can you give us a little more detail about
how things are connected together? I.e. Box A(snort sensor) -> Box B(router) ->
Box C(web server), etc. I get the feeling we're starting in the middle of a
conversation and have missed something vital...
