There are many ways to do this... Here are few suggestions:

1. Install Cygwin and use SSH
2. Terminal Services or some other terminal program such as VNC over
3. IDS Policy Manager (www.activeworx.com) -  a freeware snort policy
management tool

Subject: [Snort-users] Remote management of windows sensor

Hi Snorters,

I have deployed a Snort sensor on a Windows machine,
logging into a central MySQL database.

How do I update rules on this windows sensor?

I have access to my Linux sensor remotely through ssh
and thus I can control and manage them remotely.

How do I remotely manage Windows sensor? Its on a Win

Are there any whitepapers or tutorial on windows

Are there any documents telling about how to manage
multiple sensors and issues involved with it?

Awaiting your comments.
