[Snort-users] Flexresp

To elaborate on what Chris stated yes Flexrep gives you the ability to
send RST packets to the hostile computer and to your stations but this
is not fully functioning with win32, this is still in beta. The other
problem that has been stated is that while the crafted packet is being
constructed your computer (if on a fast network) can reply to the
hostile packet before snort can send the RST packet. 

Anyone can please correct me if I said that wrong...

Hope this helps,

It's the ability to send disruptive packets to the hosts involved.
Since snort isn't in the way of the connections, its not accepting or
denying access.

It's a good try but not something to rely on 100%.
