I'm in the midst of building a Linux WAN/DMZ/LAN packet-filter/IDP/router box. I'm currently planning to run Snort on it in inline mode, with feedback (from some rules) to the packet-filter.

Inline, on the grounds that I really don't care that much if there are attacks on the net, if they aren't getting through the packet-filter (and to save a few CPU cycles).
