Installing a Network-Based Intrusion Detection
The purpose of this document is to help you installing a Network Based Intrusion Detection, where Manager and Network Sensor sits on a single machine. The PC is equipped with 2 Intel Pro 100 Network Interface cards, where one NIC is used for Management and the other NIC is attached to a hub for listening to all traffic. You also can use a "mirrored" port on a switch. So, for a self-starter, this might be a good start to learn about IDS.
The purpose of this document is the initial configuration of Packet Alarm's Intrusion Detection.
