Hi All,
    I have a customer that wants to feed traffic into another tool 
from snort but they also want to not have some of the hits from a few 
custom rules to not show in base. So I was wondering, can I run a two 
snort processes against one interface both with a  different set of 
rules or filters?  One process to feed Base and another to capture a 
particular group of traffic into another database. Is this possible 
and what are the downsides?

They don't want to speed $$$ for another server.


Yes..you can have two instances of snort running against one NIC...say 
something like snort1.conf and snort2.conf, make sure the output lines 
aren't the same ;)
