Thanks for the information!

Does this also include version The snort.conf still includes 
the database option..... though running with the option engaged doesn't 

The reason why am asking about the older version in addition is because 
the obtainable rules are for that and not the later 2.9.4 which one 
would need subscription for.

I guess I will have to look at building Barnyard2 and figuring out how 
they integrate. It's a bit of a shame as it makes setup and running 
easier (at least for a beginner like me) :-)
