Well, I got a couple of responses! thank you, but for some reason now I am
getting the following when trying to run SNORT as follows:

snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf

Initializing rule chains...
ERROR line /etc/snort/snort.conf (41) => Unknown rule type ((null))

Line 41 is a blank line???? Any clues.....

I have just started to toy with SNORT and am curious about something. I
haven't found many good newbie instructions for configuring and placing a
"snort server" I have a linux box that I have set up in our office that can
see our web servers, firewall, etc. which is in a remote location connected
by a private T1. I would like for testing to be able to use this to monitor
traffic behind our firewall first. I plan later to add another server
outside the firewall once I get a good grasp on what I am doing and seeing.
Can any provide info, links etc. on how to set this up for testing? thanks.
