Re: IPS mode for snort

Hi list

Sorry for these questions, I'm a new snort user.
How can I enable IPS mode for snort? And is it possible to run snort in both IDS and IPS modes? How? 

Thanks in advance

I wouldn't recommend leaping into IPS mode as a new snort user without familiarizing yourself with the environment. 
It's a sharp sword that would be >easy to cut yourself on. Can you run IPS/IDS at the same time? Sure, but it may not 
be the optimal way to go. 

Thanks. Could you please tell me how can I have snort act as both IDS and IPS modes? What is the configuration?
