[Snort-sigs] Rule for identifying all trafic except the specefied one

We have a link for an ftp server and want to have an alert for all 
traffic to the ftp server except for one file type. The file that needs 
to pass has a fixed string at the start of the file. I have a rule to 
match the contents of the file,

alert tcp any any -> any (msg:"Test Rule"; 
flow:to_server,established; content: "FOOBAR"; offset:0; depth:6; rev:1; 
fwsam: src, 10 seconds;)

fwsam is used for snortsam, for blocking the ip using alerts of snort. 
Now I want to negate this rule to alert all streams that do not match 
this rule. When I try to use ! operator I get an error about Pure not 
rule. I am using snort 2.4.5

Any help will be much appreciated!
