The SnortSnmp module for Snort-2.0.0 is
ready. Could you please do the needful to put
this in the contrib section of the code. Please
let me know if anything will need to be done
before the code can be added to the contrib part.
At some later date, I intend removing the
dependability on net-snmp/ucd-snmp. I guess that
then the code will be ready for independent audit
and we can think of bringing it back to the snort
Thanks and Cheers

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
FreeBSD[ucd-snmp-4.2.* and net-snmp-5.0.*]
It seems to be working without problems.
The software is available from
Let me know if there are problems.
Thanks and Cheers
Excerpts from README.SNMP
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.
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.
NOTE: That the MIB files in the etc directory
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
It will create the following files
1. follow the usual steps to build the package
./configure --with-snmp --with-openssl
