I'm working on a project to limit the bandwidth of p2p applications
using snort sigs and altq (OpenBSD). The idea is to monitor the snorts
alerts of p2p traffic sigs and then generate on the fly filters of altq.

I'm now finishing the development of that interconection software
(snort->altq), and then I'll start collecting sigs of p2p softwares. In
that fase, anybody knows if is it possible to catch a sig across
multiples packets on the same stream? If it is, please let me know how.

Something like that:

host1 -> host2 : GET /GET/ (pkt 1)
host2 -> host1 : SERVER OK (pkt 2)

I'm using snort 1.9 with stream4 enabled.

Thanks in advance,
