[Snort-users] Assistance Request

I have been deploying a new pfSense machine using the core applications
including SNORT.  I have the subscribed VRT rules installed, along with
OpenAppID and ETOpen.


Today, I was finishing implementation and was unable to get out using
LogMeIn and noticed the errors were coming from ET.  Then the headaches
started when trying to add whitelist information.  Then I uninstalled the ET
Rules.  Now, I am not convinced the VRT & OpenAppID Rules are working.  I
just don't understand the overall rules and such to apply in the way they
need to be applied.  Completely different from Cisco and SonicWALL.


I need AND am happy to pay someone to do a review of my configuration and
confirm I am not missing something.


I am in IT and have been using Cisco & SonicWALL UTMs in the past.  This
learning curve is driving me crazy and as usual, the definitive answers on
the web are subjective.  As usual, I've spent hours and hours on the web
researching things and basically pulling out my hair.


Please, anyone with real world experience using pfSense 2.2.6, SNORT &
SQUID3 (Which I removed today due to some basic routing problems that I just
could not figure out) please reach out to me, we can work out payment and
get these basic issues resolved.  If interested, this can also turn into a
long term relationship as I really don't want to become a pfsense engineer.
I am very capable for general maintenance, but don't need another
engineering degree.  LOL.


I am PST Time Zone AND thanks in advance for any response.
