Hello everyone, ive seen alot of people recomending snort as an IDS but the only problem w/ that is im running windows. As far as the enviorment the IDS would be in... theres not alot of PCs in it, its a privet network. The top few things i want are in this order

1 - Security of course, how good the IDS acutualy is
2 - Interface, something that will not be a pain in the arse to have to deal with
3 - Price, null = best
4 - Funcontionalty, basic features that make life easyer ie. having logs sent to a remote pc, ect ect


BTW about "opensource" things, is the only opensource apps / tools just for non MS platforms? if i made an IDS for windows i would have it be open source
