Hello list,

recently I have been deployment a DMZ.  I'm trying to install and
configure an HIDS (tripwire) to get intrusion's information about a Web
Server (WebServer1).

Looking on Tripwire's manual i found that is necesary (i`m not really
sure!!!) that Tripwire run on the same machime to be monitored.  I mind,
Tripwire must be installed on WebServer1.  That is not good for me!  The
question is: Exist another way to configure Tripwire (or other HIDS)
looking for detecting a remote host? Is possible to install Tripwire in
a diferent host to WebServer1?
