pytbull -t ip-address-of-snort is run from the client machine and will send
the network traffic defined in the pytbull source code/config.cfg to snort.
The client wants ftp server running on snort in order to fetch the
snort:/var/log/snort/alert_fast.txt file.
This usage of pytbull is described at https://github.com/marcindu

Start from the pytbull setup ignoring the malicious payloads for the moment
(called clientSideAttacks in pytbull/conf/config.cfg),
and verify (e.g. with tcpdump on the client and snort) that pytbull
generates the expected traffic.

Later, if you also want to test whether snort detects malicious payloads
see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zS1f-F9niw
This shows the use of pytbull-server.py on the snort machine for opening a
reverse shell for downloading the malicious files from dropbox.

I BCC also the author of pytbull - maybe he is still still active on that
