[Snort-users] Question about Sguil

Base relies on Barnyard2 to send alerts to a databse.  Snorby works the
same way and has a more modern front end, you might try that first before
jumping into sguil.

sguil doesn't use barnyard, it has tcl agents that look at snort (and can
also look at pcap, session, ossec and other data) and sends it all to a
server running the sguil server and that goes into it's own database in a
completely different format.

Base and snorby are web based, not client based; sguil you need to run a
client (tcl based, but I have seen a exe around for windows machines).

Depending on your sensor OS, there are guides for rolling our sguil, but if
you have everything else working right now, you might just want to check
out snorby first.
