Just take this Link here: http://www.entropy.ie/research/snort4-latest.pdf

They have a nice explanation of how to setup an IDS system using Snort and
ACID on Linux. They are using Redhat for example but i built it on my
Mandrake 8.1.

Example here: http://JAMy.homelinux.org/
or directly: http://JAMy.homelinux.org/acid/acid_main.php

If you have any questions directly to this, just email me.

I am in the process of setting up and IDS system using Linux\Snort in
DMZ. A couple of questions regarding this

1. Is it a safe practice to have access to this system from Inside
Network (for retrieving log files etc) from 1-2 Stations ? Ofcourse IDS
won't have access to inside network and be blocked by Firewall.

2. What kind of services should be running on IDS Station ? Should all
Web\FTp etc services be stopped ?

3. How important it is to also have an IDS system monitoring the traffic
on your Inside Network ? I believe it won't be a good idea to have the
SAME DMZ IDS system with another NIC monitoring Inside Network Traffic ?

Any other suggestions OR any Links that I can refer to ?

Regards \\ Naman
