Let me give you a run down of what I setup tonight so that I can learn
more about attack signatures.

What I did was install Nessus (www.nessus.org) on my SuSE Linux box.  I
then ran sniffer pro on my NT machine and I'm running each Nessus plugin
individually.  Once I run one attack, I go to the NT machine and look at
the sniffer data then compare what I come up with to the corresponding
rule in Snort.  I figure this is a good way to learn NIDS analysis and at
the same time learn how to write Snort rules.

Just thought I'd share the method with ya.
