This might be rhetorical, but with the second version of your startup
command there is a second thing that needs to be run.

sudo iptables -I FORWARD -j NFQUEUE

The second way you ran it indicates that you're attempting to run
suricata in an inline mode. First you must have your binary set up and
compiled correctly to do so.

If you installed from PPA it's precompiled in there but I recommend
you compile from source because it will optimize the binary for your
Are you doing that? If you are you also should create a bridge
interface in your /etc/network/interfaces file.

I might just be saying redundant things but wanted a clear picture of
what you've got going on.
