Hi Michael,
That's good news. With Syslog Daemon, I can configure it to submit the snort alert log to the system event log. Then, I can use an app like EventWatchNT, to send specific alerts to an email address.
You can find EventWatchNT here:
When I get to the lab I'll test it. Thanks!

	You will need something like Syslog Daemon and run the alerts through that. 
	It has an option of emailing on certain triggers. If you find a free tool 
	that works, please let us windows folks know. The alerts can be sent to the 
	Event Viewer, application log in Windows and if you can find something to 
	parse that file and alert, that would be great.

	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
