:   Helllo Everybody.
:   I have snort running on win2k and it is working fine so far.I had placed
: it in DMZ to monitor the malicious traffic passing through firewall and Now
: i want to put another snort win2k system in Public zone i.e in between my
: router and firewall so i can know which traffic is actually hitting the
: outside interface of my firewall.
:   My concern is :  Since my snort system ( win2k ) is gonna be on public IP
: address , what will happen if somebody runs a Denial of service attack on my
: snort system itself.
:   How can i be sure that my snort system running on win2k is safe from DOS
: attack ?
:   Thanks
