You could always use SWATCH. Swatch is a perl script and under Linux has
workd very good for many folks. I was thinking of using it under Windows 2K
myself for another project. I find it to be a very good tool for e-mail type
alerts. You can find swatch on www.freshmeat.net

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
