Im a new snorter. I just got thru re-formatting a server that had been
running NFR. I liked it, but it was WAY too expensive for my budget. I
d/l'ed the new windows version of snort 1.6.3, and got it running. I have a
question that probably is an easy answer, but i'm not sure which way to go.
If I am running a machine with WIN98, how do I get the network card to run
in promiscious mode? If I don't setup TCP/IP, will I be invisible to the
network? I know that NFR did not require setup on the adapter that was
connected to the monitored network, but I was unsure how to get the same
results from WIN98.
I also plan to get it running on a server with Redhat 7.0. Any suggestions
about my choice of OS? Thanks guys.
