Thanks Y M,

That is actually the video I watched go setup Snort or pfsense, which was
an awesome video. I remember seeing things come in like netflix. Since I
have a pretty large network, I am wondering if pfsense int capturing
everyone's request via Snort.... for example, I visited netflix on my
computer and searched for my IP address on the alerts page and saw my
request. But the next thing I did was visit Facebook and nothing showed up
when viewing alerts and searching for my IP address.
