Hello
Is there a Linux based product that would allow me to use a dedicated Linux box as an IPS system which also allows signature updates etc.?

Thanks!

You have abandoned the question for over seven months and you are surprised?

But while I appreciate the points, you obviously do not understand how to close a question.  I am going to ask a Moderator to open this question again, so that this time you can get it right.

This is from the EE Guidelines:

How do I close a question?
There are five ways:

Accept an Expert's comment as the solution
If an Expert has given you the solution to your question, or has led you to the solution, select this option.

Accept multiple solutions
If several Experts collaborated to provide a solution, use this option and split the points among them.

Accept your own comment as the solution
If you solved your problem with no assistance from any Expert, post your solution and then click the

Accept As Solution button in your own comment.
Accept your own comment, and award points to Experts for their assistance
If you answered your own question, but wish to award points to Experts for their attempts to help, use this option.

Delete your question
If you are not getting the kinds of responses that will lead to a solution, you should consider deleting your question and trying again. The Delete Question button is located near the text of your original post.
If you are not certain which selection to make, click the Request Attention button, and the Moderators will help you with the proper choice.
