[Snort-users] Snort agent installation

To addon you may want to define "console" to us, whether it is acid,
snort center or something else... some consoles want snort information
in syslog format, others can take the standard alert files, and others
want it in a mysql database. At any point you will need to set your
snort.conf file to point to that format. 

snort itself is a agent (in so many words) that collects, analyze and
logs suspicious traffic. You use a console such as acid or demarc (which
snort does not have) to monitor those alerts/logs and alert you to them.
When you download and compile snort, you download something that will
only collect and analyze traffic, you must then find another tool to
manage those alerts and hopefully something that will manage snort as
well.

Hope that helps...

There is no snort agent, there is just snort.  It is all in how you
compile/configure it.

Thanks Jason,
             In only on snort. Taps would be brought to monitor
traffic from isolated network which would have snort agent  reporting
back to main snort console.  Probably am download the wrong snort
binaries file or may be I need to config the same snort install file
to point back to console ??? Am be lost here . At the moment I
supppose the snort files as both agent and console together. 
Anyway that where I am ??/ any help would greatly appreciated.
thanks
Jk

Jack,

The files immediately available at http://www.snort.org/dl are source
code. You will have to download a binary build from 
http://www.snort.org/dl/binaries/ for your operating system or
compile 
the source to use Snort.

It sounds from you mail like you are attempting to use a third party 
application in addition to Snort. Could you provide more information
on 
your setup so that we can better assist you.
