I have a script for use with the "service" command (and "chkconfig") in
RHEL5. I'm not familiar with Debian; dunno if it'd transport well. Also
it's customized for two sensors on one box (must start multiple snort
instances). I can post on the list or send it if you like.

I've been using the Snorby SBSA for a few days now, and I must say I
really like the interface and the easy setup.  I do have a few issues
that I'd like to manually resolve if anyone has any suggestions.

First, I'd like to be able to utilized SO rules but Oinkmaster doesn't
handle them.  I've looked at Pulled Pork on a previous incarnation of
this machine but I wasn't very successful in getting it to work with
both VRT and ET rules.  Any suggestions on what else I could use?

Second, the snort init script simply starts snort - it doesn't allow for
start/stop/restart.  I'd like to just restart snort to reload the rules,
but one process gets stuck (no permission to the PID file) so I have to
reboot the server.  Does anyone have a good Debian init script for

Thanks! - Chris
