I have had a GREAT deal of success with Snort.

and for the windows crowd.

Keep in mind that any IDS is only as good as the rules that you are running on it so you will have to put some time into managing rules on any IDS but they are well worth it if you have to provide a law enforcement agency with proof that damage has been inflicted and by whom. Keep in mind that Intrusion Detection System is not by any means an Intrusion Prevention System. So your first step should be to have a properly fire walled and patched system to begin with. Some IDS (including Snort) can be coupled with scripts that shut out an offending IP by adding rules to a firewall but that is not the main function of the IDS.

How abt snort inline for IPS.

You can use snort-inline to even support your opensource antivirus solutions. If properly configured & managed well we can say like 40% of bad traffic can be waived off by snort-inline.
