You can use a pass rule to do this, be careful with them though

Is there a way to exclude the snort host from all rules?  I am a very
new user and have just installed the software.  Almost all the alerts I
see are my Snort machine talking to our Windows 2000 server.  I get
messages for L3retriever, SMB, etc. and they are mostly from my snort
How can I tell snort to ignore everything coming from itself???
