[Snort-users] Questions about Eagle X v2.0

Ok I tried this out and it's very nice, one of the fastest installs of Snort
on a windows machine I've seen...except for some questions I have:

- Are the config settings backed up? (Mysql, snort, php, etc)  If yes, where
are they backed up?  If no, this would be a nice thing to centralize.
(My guess is it simply overwrites them without consequence in the individual
storage locations.)
- It does not request an installation point, and dumped everything in my C:\
directory where I will have to move it.
(This is a very bad design flaw, since some of us may want to install it
redundantly for testing purposes)
- Changes to IDSCenter, do not take permanent affect (IE: IP ADDRESS OF
DYNAMIC HOST) which then causes silly errors in IDSCenter. (Page not found,
host not found, etc.), this seems to be due to eagle config vs. snort config
via idscenter.  Should one rerun the eagle config?
- It does not seem to understand what 'localhost' or is. (Not sure
about this one, could have been a server issue, but loopback did work)
- How does one upgrade one application (IE: PHP) without uninstalling and
reinstalling everything?

Also Preprocessor2-ignorehosts does not seem to work (snort FATAL
ERROR)....any idea's?

At the very least the next version should ask you where you want to install

Otherwise a great step forward in snort on windows tools, great work!
