A host based IDS


Ok, so I was going to use Snort until it wouldn't load properly. Is there something else out there that will work just as easy that is open source so i can watch for intrusion attempts. Any help would be great. If you do know of something, could you post some step by step installation instructions. I followed the snort ones exactly but Linux didn't like it. I would post the responses I received, but I'm not at that system at the moment.

Thank you in advance................

snort is far far away the market leader here, so stick with it, and ask for help about it.

I know for sure that I have used "tar -xvf file_to_unpack.tar" so maybe I should use "tar -xzf file_to_unpack.tar.gz -C /directory_to_extract_to" ????

Do I need to type something before it on the command line?

Thanks in advance.
