I`m using snort in a lab for a couple months now in combination whit Base and NSM.

During this periode, i have a few simple questions. I`m currios how other snort-user solve this.

When i`m updating the rules on my snort-sensor. I`m rewriting my snort.conf file. Mainly because , there is an new snort.conf file whit every rule delivery. What are your opinion about this? Are you using the snort.conf file from the rules or form the snort delivery?

Secondly. I can not find an version number in the rule sets. currently. I`m setting the release date in the rules tar file before deploying. How do you keep track of rule sets?

Best Reguards,
