[Snort-users] syslog viewer

I also send all snort sensors to a Kiwi standard syslog server. I wrote a
little Perl script to parse the syslog file to display the current x number
of alerts and change color depending on the priority flag setting.

I can post the script and samples to
http://www.netsecadmin.com/cgi-bin/getsnipsweb.pl in a couple of days if
interested. Nothing spectacular but works.

The way I have it set up is that I start snort with the -s flag set.

In /etc/syslogd.conf you can specify:
*.*                                             @some.host.on.your.net

All alerts will be sent to that host. We use the Kiwi Syslog Daemon for
Windows. It displays syslog messages from many different hosts; router
messages, root logins, ftp sessions, smtp monitors, and snort.
