Snort IPS on FreeBSD

Messages: 16

So far I have setup a bx with Snort, Barnyard, BASE and use it as a sensor box.
I want to add IPS functionality so I want to know what should use and why?
1. Should I use snort-inline?
2. Should I use snortsam?
Please do also mention guides for setting them up if possible.

So far I have found this guide for snortsam:

But I wanted to use the ports collection to install all the requirements.
