Seriously, go ahead and ask away.  People here will do their best to help
you excel.  Sometimes, they'll just tell you where to look, which in the
long run, is best.
 
Look for Poppi Sandros' text on how to set up snort for different reports
(just look up his name).  Lots of great stuff in there

Hi guys, 

Just signed up for this ML. Don't know about any rules or guide lines so 
bear with me. Anyways, I'm pretty new to both Linux and Snort (keeping an 
eye on HoneyD as well) and I guess my first question is kinda stupid: 

If I would like to monitor the activity on a network with all computers on 
the same subnet (the gateway is a firewall to the Internet). How would I set

up Snort? On what computer can I run it to be able to listen to all traffic?


I set up a test Snort but it would only see the traffic to the machine on 
which I ran it. 

Any ideas? 

Regards, 
Mike
