Hi All,

I currently have snort compiled with mysql support and it is logging 
correctly, but I am looking at changing the logging to point at a central 
MS SQL server.  Until I know it works I don't want to totally ditch the 
mysql logging.

Is this as 'easy' as recompiling with '- -with-mssql - -with-mysql', or do 
I have to compile with one option only ?

Also, my MSSQL people tell me that our central infrastructure only 
supports database connections with the following constraints -
the application must be able to run against a database hosted in a Named 
Instance, not the default SQL Server Instance
must not require administration privileges to the SQL Server Instance 
(admin access to the database is OK, not to the server instance)
we can only support SQL Server 2005 databases on the cluster
Does anyone know whether the Snort MSSQL support fits in this model ?  I 
will start reading now, but I'm up against a bit of time pressure, so if 
anyone knows the answers straight off it would be cool.
