Thank You for the response,

Let me a bit more clear about what I am trying to describe.

I am trying to / have configured snort to log on to the MSSQL server which sits on a 

WIndows System .  The DB has been configured with the proper schema . 

The only problem area is to get snort (residing on the Linux machine) to log data/events to 

the WIndows MS SQL server.

I essentially am looking for some kind of bridge to get snort , log data to the MS SQL 

I guess this info should be good enough.

Let me know if you have a solution.
