The two are not designed to work together.
It turns out that SNFMilter has the full SNF engine in it so if you have
SNFMilter running you should also be able to use SNFClient and things
that act like SNFClient such as SNF4SA.
This is not something we test heavily though because almost nobody tries
to do this. Most folks who run SNFMilter either build their own software
to manage messages (Milter API is highly restrictive) or have SNFMilter
inject headers that are later consumed by SpamAssassin and other
ubiquitous tools so that they can customize their system easily.
If you are using SA after SNFMilter, consider simply adding rules that
recognize headers injected by SNFMilter and add appropriate weights for
SNF's results. This is a common and successful configuration which
allows you to reject some messages during SMTP with SNFMilter and then
score the remaining messages using SNF's scan results with SA and other
tools that are usually bundled with SA.
You shouldn't try to run SNFMilter and SNFServer on the same system at
the same time. If you have SNFMilter running, the SNFServer "back-end"
should already be provided in that service. (Check that XCI is on, it
should be by default). In that case running SNFServer would be redundant.
