    Snort. It doesn't get any cheaper then this (it's free).

    Zone Alarm is not only a good intrusion detecter, but it is the best firewall I have ever used. It will also trace the intruder for you without having to use a seperate ping program. If you can afford it, the Pro version is fantastic!

    If your able to monitor every bit of traffic and analyze it, nothing really cant get past you. If you do end up getting a IDS system make sure you configure it to monitor all used protocols, telnet,FTP,RPC,DNS,SMTP etc.. If you dont have a firewall, nows the time to get one with your IDS system.

    Thanks for the Snort link. I am starting to think about IDS and you just pointed me in the right direction.
