A couple of thoughts:
1) as discussed on a couple of other lists, the ttl at the destination
device would be 0? or 1? (guess I need to attack myself and look)

2) I would expect that our snort boxes are NOT configured on the WAN
(serial/frame relay/fiber) side of our routers so we won't pick up
directed attacks against our correct router, however, any dual WAN routers
that are used for our subnets will pick it up, as well as anyone doing
address sweeps.  Without snort listening on the OUTSIDE of your router, you
won't pick up the attack.

3) The CISCO released ACL snipps may prove a better way to watch the
traffic (put the acl's on for the above protocols, even if you have
upgraded your firmware and use the 'log' or 'log-interface' option if you
have multiple interfaces.  If you want to feed these logs to snort, you
can do it with one of several add-ons, or, make snort sig to watch the
syslog udp going from your router to your syslog server.
