Dear Alberto,

Thx for this.

I go through the Snortsam and Hogwash, but they doesn't fullfill my requirement.
Actually for Hogwash, I have to put my snort box in a pass-through mode between the internal and external n/w and for Snortsam, it only modifies the rules for some firewall which is again at the gateway of the n/w.
Let say some internal guy is doing somethink ill-legal, then these two will not work.
Suppose I want that no porson in my internal network will not be able to do FTP within the network if the file contains some specified characters or say logging as "root".
So for it Snortsam and Hogwash will not be able to detect and take a action according to that. I want that as this guy initialte such things and when the Snort come to know about this then the connection is blocked automatically and a message is send to the user doing that.

Merry Christmas and a fruitful new year .......
Regards and have a nice day,
