Good morning,

How about setting the students up in groups of three and give them each
a task. One installs Nessus, one installs Snort and one installs
smoothwall on a box with httpd enabled and maybe sshd and similar easily
enabled services.

Then hook them up to a switch allowing for port mirroring or an old hub.
Initiate a Nessus scan against the firewalled box running the accessible
services and see what Snort spews out.

That could be set up with a lot of defaults and plenty of challenges for
any level of student.

However if it has to be completed in three hours and can't span multiple
days this may take too long :)
