Hi experts,

I am newbie in Snort

But i have a question: where i can install snort on a network? My means are:
install Snort behind routers, modems or can place Snort servers any where in a
network?
Any one can sharing me a network map that including Snort?
Maybe my question is stupid but it's my big question.
Any help is appreciated,

you can place snort anywhere on your network that you desire... many networks 
have numerous snorts in place... each one protecting its assigned segment of the 
network...

a map? sure... here's a couple real quick...
