The Snort rules are updated daily using Oinkmaster.Easy IDS can be configured to use and update the official Snort (VRT licensed) rules, the community rules and third party rules such as the Bleeding Snort rules. Snort Notify is a lightweight script that searches the database for new alerts meeting the configured priority and sends an e-mail containing specific information about those alerts. PMGraph is a perl script that generates Snort performance graphs.Noting that an automated update really needs to use the Snort "Pulled Pork" script, not anything old!EDIT: I have been considering putting together a significant IDS/IPS improvement proposal for the Wishlist. Initializing Network Interface eth0using config file /etc/Initializing Preprocessors! ] ERROR /usr/local/lib/snort/virus.rules(97) = Bad port number: "(msg:"VIRUS"Fatal Error, Quitting..---------is the error message i get when i try to replace the snort rules from over the existing ones i have from the last smoothwall update (like 2 months ago). I just want to double check that the file that you edited is the actual file snort is using.

Can someone tell me the commandline for running a snort rule update and trigger a reload?

Some of the graphs include: Dropped Packets, Alerts Per Second, Average Bytes Per Packet, Open Sessions, CPU stats, and much more. We can work with you to determine the exact needs of your business and provide recommendations to future-proof your software.

With our programs behind your business, you can expect things to run smoothly every time.

However I've not had much time available and still need to research how best things should be done.

For one thing, IPFire could use a better IDS page in the web user interface, where rules could be toggled on and off properly (and permanently - even after updates).
