[Snort-users] snort and firewall all in one machine

You need to have snort listening on your inside interface.  It uses
libpcap so it see's traffic at the same time as the firewall.

Subject: [Snort-users] snort and firewall all in one machine


I am currently running the firewall and snort within the same machine;
and snort is having its detections before firewall blocks the packets.  
I would like to use snort to test if my firewall actually blocks the
packets launched by attackers.  Would anyone give me some advice on how
I could configure IDS to do its detections after the firewall blocks the
packets by its rules?

Thanks in advance,
