[Snort-users] Automatically block IP on firewall box from snort IDS

Hi Kevin,

I already tried snortsam on my OpenBSD firewall but it looks like the code is outdated and it simply does not compile with the latest PF (packet filter) of OpenBSD 4.9. The mailing list of snortsam is also dead and the author does not reply neither on his private mail. I can only conclude here that the snortsam project is dead or at least it's OpenBSD part :(

Any other ideas?

Now because these two security tasks are not on the same physical machine I was wondering how can I automatically block on my OpenBSD firewall specific events which happens on my snort box?
