Hello Guys,

i have a question regarding packet evaluation in Snort 2.9.11 (not
C++!). I am willing to replace the Detection Engine (no portgroups, no
fpPatternMatching...) by simply running my own function to the flowing
packet while ignoring the rest of Snort. As simple as it might sound,
what is the fastest way to achieve this with existing function in the

I don't need any preprocessors or anything, i just need to make use of a
firewall-functionality in Snort (packet classification).

Thank You..
