    Default Untangle versus stand alone Snort

    Could someone please let me know the differences between using Untangle for an IPS box (as well as the other features) as opposed to running a straight up Snort install?

    Thanks!

    Any answer here? I am also wondering how the IDS rack on UT holds up. I have a particular client to get ready for a federal audit in a couple months. I need the IDS to not only detect a probe but actually notify me of the activity via Kaseya which we utilize on our contracts clients but I have not gotten this to work just yet with Untangle.

    Never heard of 'Snort', so I can't answer your questions. Anybody else?

    Snort is an open source intrusion detection system that is so very generic in how it works it's a wonder anyone ever gets any use out of it...

    The Attack Blocker is actually running Snort. However, because of the way the UT rack works within the UVM most of the signatures don't apply.

    But, at this point I think the argument is moot. UT doesn't contain functionality to notify admins in the event of a breach. All it can do is send a nightly report with the information collected over the day.

    Default SNMP with Kaseya?

    Anyone get snmp traps working with Untangle yet for Kesaya. Noone over at the Kaseya forums has heard of Untangle. Most use SonicWall.
