[Snort-sigs] RAR File Detection

I am new to the list and fairly-new to SNORT rule writing.

I am trying to create a snort rule that detects "rar" files exiting our network...regardless of protocol/service. (I am assuming clear text-type protocols will only work here.) I am unable to create a rule that will fire on the criteria I have supplied for that rule.

In the content of the rule, I have tried using hex ("52 61 72 21 1A 07" to cover both versions of rar)  and also ascii ("Rar!", with case sensitivity enabled/disabled). I did not define depth nor offset so that the entire payload is examined. I also performed a packet capture to confirm that both values for content exist in the payload of the packet capture. Further, to eliminate them as a potential cause, I also have replaced the variables with known IP values of the traffic captured. Still no luck.

Below are the rules I've tried:

alert tcp $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET any (sid:1002235; gid:1; content:"|52 61 72 21 1A 07|"; msg:"RAR file Detected_Testing_Please Ignore"; classtype:Test; rev:40; )

alert tcp $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET any (sid:1002235; gid:1; content:"Rar!"; msg:"RAR file Detected_Testing_Please Ignore"; classtype:Test; rev:40; )
