Building a snort sensor – part 1

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

I have already covered Suricata in my previous posts, but sometimes you just need to have snort setup for various reasons.

First go get freebsd , then use the FreeBSD handbook (if you need to) and create a basic installation.  I like to do a user install, but minimal will also work  (but you get no man pages, so if you need that go with a user install ).

Next you will need Snort, you can use your OS’s package manager, I am going to use the FreeBSD ports system.

cd /usr/ports/security/snort
make install clean

Now just sit back and wait it out.
