Subject: [Snort-users] Snort IPS Functionality

Hello all,

            I'm interested in using snort on a FreeBSD machine as an
IPS. I've read the docs on the website and as far as I can see the only
available "IPS" functionality exists on Linux, using iptables. Does this
actually just drop the questionable packet - or is it generating
firewall rules? And does any of the IPS functionality work on FreeBSD at
all? There was a project a while ago called Hogwash, which would do
exactly what I'm interested in - but that seems long dead...


Thanks in advance
