[Snort-users] Snort rules questions

It was late last night when I responded and I forgot to say that I am
running IPChains and I was when my little box was running fine for about 12
hours.  I am also running PortSentry.

The number of rules is

Using LOCAL time
923 Snort rules read...
923 Option Chains linked into 135 Chain Headers

I don't know where I got the idea that there were 100 or so maybe from the
chain headers.

Thanks for your help
