Hi All

I recently installed logsnorter and ACID with the intent to interpret PIX
firewall logs.  After I got everything working I found an link to Neohapsis
where Jason Haar (logsnorter author) says that logsnorter does not support
PIX logs. Included is an extract of a mail he sent to me:

No it doesn't. I've given up on it anyway. I've found there's enough things
being reported in snort that I don't need to report all the things seen by

Too much information is as bad as too little sometimes...

Why does http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/~rdanyliw/snort/snortacid.html say that
logsnorter does support PIX log format?  Did somebody do extra work on the
code to include pix?  Is there any other open source apps that does support
pix logs?

Any help on this matter will be much appreciated.
