[Snort-users] Help with Alerts

When you say 'will include the SIDS from your local ruleset', you are
referring to the local.rules file, correct?

If that's the case; as long as there is no local.rules file, oinkmasters
stand alone sid.msg.map utility should work fine.

For my applications PP is a little messy to implament.

I'd like to see a basic default run of that adds all the stock rulesets
based on the stock snort.conf. The basic default should be exactly like
manually adding a new rule set.  

Is it possible to use PP to only process the sid.msg.map? 

Kindest regards,

It is part of oinkmaster. 

As someone said earlier in the thread, you need to be using pulledpork to
generate the Sid-MSG.map because that will include the SIDS from you local
