Actually, there isn't much to configure rules-wise for Snort. The rules
are there, you just tell Snort if you want to use it in its config file.
If you want graphical management, take a look at SnortCenter. It can
manage both rules and config files centrally, and is easy to setup and
But hey, nothing beats vim and a good read of the Snort manual if you're
on a *nix platform. Even with SnortCenter, the Snort User Manual is a
must read if you want to know more about writing rules.
Good luck, and have fun!
