How to only monitor/use as IDS Snort only?
I am basically installing Snort on my home network as a test, however I want to just use it to monitor and log alerts however not take any actions like dropping traffic like an IPS. Will Snort only monitor traffic by default or will it drop too based on rules? I am kind of a newbie so forgive my lack of knowledge. I am going to follow the manual/online tutorial for install, I was just wondering before I install it if it would like start blocking all the sites my bro went to or something
