Snort build options

  • We are looking for a way to get alerts from Snort to our RMM software. SNMP would be ideal. I know Snort can support this when built with the –with-snmp option. Is there any way I can see what the build options are for Snort? Sorry if this is an overly simple question. I have limited *nix/BSD experience.

  • I didn't know Snort could do this, and after a quick bit of searching I'm not convinced that the current version of Snort can do SNMP. I found some references to pre 2.0 Snort and SNMP, and some references to third party plugins, but nothing in the manual for 2.9.9 mentions sending alert info via SNMP.

    If your RMM supports Syslog you could use it.
