The concerned rule is

cmd.exe access"; flow:to_server,established; content:"cmd.exe"; nocase;
classtype:web-application-attack; sid:1002;  rev:5;)

I am wondering why the rule is not triggered for the following pkt:

06:50:06.369340 A.B.194.106.4843 > X.Y.134.191.http: P 0:73(73) ack

0x0070   0a                                             .

I am using the snort.2.0.0 downloaded just now from snort.org.

The snort.conf had -
#This rule file has the above rule
include $RULE_PATH/web-iis.rules

Note that no alerts were in fact generated, so it is not due to the fact
that the packet triggered some other alert.. (first exit)

Thanks a lot !
