    14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

    SNORT.

    In fact, I just wrote a paper on expanding the role of snort in our enterprise this morning. www.snort.org

    Have you read TheHorse13' tuts on Nmap? That's where I'm starting from. Don't know much yet myself, though I do know the above mentioned SNORT is quite popular.

    I know very little about this but will be looking into snort, Tripwire, Toplayer, Internet Security systems, and net screen

    Knight....Nmap is basically a scanner it is not an IDS (Intrusion Detection System).

    I knew that...I was just...making sure you knew that...

    Thanks for setting my straight there. 3ntropy's paper helped too. So port scanning for intrustions an IDS does not make, got it.

    Before even considering an IDS there are many other things that you will want to think about. deploying an IDS is not as simple as installing snort, configuring it and then letting it go. There are many, many factors involved and none are to be overlooked. Head over to http://www.security-focus.com for more info. They have a large database covering any questions you would have.
