I have a client who has a base installation of SNORT, but would like to manage it from their new Sourcefire 3D Defense Center Appliance. Is this possible?

Thanks for there reference RichCrumble! I see that I need the Sourcefire Intrusion Agent to forward events generated by Snort to Defense Center.

The Sourcefire Intrusion Agent is only supported in the 4.x product line, the 5.x product line does not continue this feature.
