Re: [Security Basics] Portsentry and Snort

Portsentry is an excellent IDS, but more limited in scope than Snort (not an apples-to-apples product exactly).

I'd run 'em both for diversity...both are good products with a solid history.

Just IMO,

Should I install both portsentry and snort on my server? I have read so many articles that praise one and knock the other that I don't know what to do.

Thanks for you time,
