Hi Folks,
    Sincere apologies for getting this thing out.
The SnortSnmp module compatible with snort-2.0.0
is ready. I have tried it on a number of
platforms
     Solaris[ucd-snmp-4.2.*],
     FreeBSD[ucd-snmp-4.2.* and net-snmp-5.0.*]
     Linux  [net-snmp-5.0.*].
It seems to be working without problems.

The software is available from
http://www.cysol.co.jp/contrib/snortsnmp/SnortSnmp-2.0.0-01.gz

Let me know if there are problems.

Thanks and Cheers

      Glenn


PS.
Excerpts from README.SNMP

Introduction.
    The snortSnmpPlugin enables snort to send snmp alerts to network
    managemement systems (NMS). The alerts can be traps (the alert will
    not be acknowledged by the receiver) or informs (the alert will be
    acknowledged by the receiver ).
    This adds significant power to the NMS by allowing it to monitor the
    security of the network. It also allows the snort sensor to exploit
    the features that are built into existing network management systems.

Requirements:
    The plugin requires the net-snmp (or ucd-snmp) libraries and header files.

    You will need to download and install the net-snmp (ucd-snmp)
    package before you try to install this plugin. The package can be
    downloaded from http://net-snmp.sourceforge.net/

    You will need the latest snort source distribution.

Activation Steps:

     NOTE: That the MIB files in the etc directory
           etc/SnortCommonMIB.txt
           etc/SnortIDAlertMIB.txt

       need to be referred to by snmp applications.

           [Otherwise the OID-to-name translation will not take place]
           refer to the snmpcmd manpages [do 'man snmpcmd'] for further details.


  0. Build the Snmp enabled snort package.
     DownLoad the SnortSnmpModule.
     uncompress and untar - it will contain
           README.SNMP                    -- This file
           SnortSnmpPatch-<Version>.gz.   -- Patch to build the Snmp enabled snort

     In the Snort home directory  (this is where snort is gunzipped and untarred)
     apply the patch SnortSnmpPatch e.g.

           zcat SnortSnmpPatch-2.0-01.gz | patch -c

     This will update the following files
           configure.in
           Makefile.am
           src/plugbase.c
           etc/snort.conf
     It will create the following files
           doc/README.SNMP
           etc/SnortCommonMIB.txt
           etc/SnortIDAlertMIB.txt
           src/output-plugins/spo_SnmpTrap.c
           src/output-plugins/spo_SnmpTrap.h

  1. follow the usual steps to build the package

           ./configure --with-snmp --with-openssl
           make
           su
           make install
