Hi All,

Sorry about these bunch of newbie questions. I'm in the path of evaluating snort, and it's being used on Windows 2000 Server. Everything is running really smooth. I had a BSOD, but I think it's related to the packet capture driver version.

I would like to ask experienced snort users, if there are any ways of emailing some alerts (maybe a perl script of some sort that would parse the alert.ids file and send emails if it finds a specific alert). Also if there are any ways of automating the process of filtering out dynamically some kinds of attacks. I already know that it will not be easy with Windows 2000, but maybe snort can be used together with some firewall / filtering product available. Currently using Zone Alarm Pro.

If these things are possible, I would like to thank in advance if someone could point me to the right direction.

Thanks again,

Romulo M. Cholewa
