This snort version by default runs as INLINE (nfq) IDS as well as IPS. i.e. it works by using iptables NFQUEUE target. i.e. it does not run in sniffing mode and it can block packets at firewall level.

However, it can perfectly run as legacy IDS only mode by changing snort.conf and systemd start up files.
