[Snort-users] Monitoring techniques on switch

cheap and dirty method is to use a hub on the segment you wish to monitor

for example we use to have

internet connection -> hub -> switch

off the hub we'd have an sensor listening and logging to a seperate network.

Not the best solutions but better than nothing (and easy to implement)
