You are correct. 1.8 is still in beta/testing. You can get a copy from the
Snort CVS repository which is available at: http://snort.sourceforge.net
follow the link to the CVS and follow the instructions for anonymous login
to the repository. They are more or less:

Assuming that you have cvs installed on your local box you can get a copy of
the entire distribution by executing the following:


cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.snort.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/snort login

(Press <Enter> when prompted for the password.)


cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.snort.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/snort co

Which will create the snort tree with all source and subdirectories in your
current directory.

Another option is to grab the daily snapshot at:
http://snort.sourceforge.net/snort-daily.tar.gz (This is sometimes a little
behind the CVS tree for some reason.)

I beleive alot of people are using 1.8 (myself included). It has been very
stable. I have been running it in various configurations (and in various
beta versions) for over a month with no problems. You may also want to check
the FAQ at: http://www.snort.org/FAQ.html for information on the various
rule sets etc....

Hi All,

Newbie 3rd Class here.
Turning on the Densometer...

I have been on the list a short time and have been seeing alot about version
1.8, but when I got to Snort.org it only has downloads for 1.7. Is it still
in Beta? How can I get It? Is it only available to Linix, Unix, Etc?

Ben Johansen...
