Snort on Pfsense - how does it work? - SOLVED-
I'm testing the pfsense 1.2-beta-2 right now. I've used M0n0wall before, but I've already noticed the pfsense is a big step ahead! Only the serial connection instead of vga-modus is a lesser solution than it was for the M0n0wall.
I've read that SNORT is implemented in pfsense. But how does it operate? I can't see a link in the WEBgui. Is it standard, or do I have to 'activate' it? Does it update automaticly?
Thanks for your reaction(s)!

From your statements about the serial console and the missing vga support is suspect you're using the embedded version.
You need to use the full version to use snort.
–> snort is a package
and packages are only on the full version supported.
OK. I tried the embedded version because the Live Installer is an ISO.gz file; when I unpack it with winrar, I get the complete CD, but that couldn't be the way to burn an ISO image. I think? I'll look op more information about burning the image to a CD. If you've got hints or links, I would very much appreciate that!
I did it. Burnt the CD with Imgburn, and after setting the harddisk on LBA in the BIOS the installation was succesfull. Thanks for the help, GruensFroeschli!
