Snort Help - Network IDS
From: "Jason Haith" <jhaith () genesissys com>

Recently I posted a question on different types of monitoring and ids
setups. I have decided to go with snort and have been using it on a smaller
network with no problem. However now, I need to move it to a production
network which will consist of around a 100 servers all linked through 3com
switches and going out through a watchgaurd firewall. I'm looking for
different ways to implement this without setting up another single point of
failure device which our firewall is. I'm not confident enough yet to risk
something like that. I haven't found much information on packet sniffing
when it comes to multiple entry points, found some info on wiretap, etc. but
I've always received such great help on here I thought I would ask before I
decided on something. Would really appreciate any help, I'm in a heck of a
bind right now. Thanks.
