Hi,

There was a typo in the URL given in  the earlier mail. The software
is available from

Hi Folks,
       Sincere apologies for the delay in getting this
thing out. The SnortSnmp module compatible with
snort-2.0.0 is ready. I have tried it on the following
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
