Privacy Policy and Big Brother

Eric Hansen Eric Hansen Profile: Eric Hansen

Review: Snort GUI – Snorby

Eric Hansen Eric Hansen Profile: Eric Hansen

Snort on Low-End Servers

Eric Hansen Eric Hansen Profile: Eric Hansen

Recently I've been looking more in-depth into Snort.  I've had it in use for my business for a little while now, but I wanted to see how far down the spec-chain I can get it to run on.  I already had it running fine in a virtual machine environment with 4GB of RAM, so I worked from that machine....
