Truly a noob
Perhaps it would help if you were to provide a more detailed description of the problem.

For example the command you start snort is .....

you have what in rc.local .....

you have what as a cron job ....

what makes you think snort is not running ? what is the output of

ps aux | grep snort
simply stating that it is not working does not seem to be an effective means of communication.
