Name        : fwsnort
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 1.6.1
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://www.cipherdyne.org/fwsnort/
Summary     : Translates Snort rules into equivalent iptables rules
Description :
fwsnort translates Snort rules into equivalent iptables rules and generates
a Bourne shell script that implements the resulting iptables commands.

In addition, fwsnort (optionally) uses the IPTables::Parse module to parse the
iptables ruleset on the machine to determine which Snort rules are applicable
to the specific iptables policy.

fwsnort is able to translate approximately 60% of all rules from the
Snort-2.3.3 IDS into equivalent iptables rules.
