assuming all host are on the same subnet it would be x.y.x.0/29, if they do
in fact begin with with the x.x.x.1 numbering

Subject: [Snort-users] RE: portscan-ignorehosts not working


I'm using snort-1.6-3 on redhat 6.x
portscan-ignorehosts seem not working right

I have six host that i'd like to ignore
here's section on my rules

var DNS1  x.y.z.1/32  x.y.z.2/32
var DNS2  x.y.z.3/32  x.y.z.4/32
var DNS3  x.y.z.5/32  x.y.z.6/32

preprocessor portscan: $INTERNAL  3 5  /var/log/snort/portscan.log
preprocessor portscan-ignorehosts: $DNS1 $DNS2 $DNS3

restarting snort, the portsan log still shows the
scan for x.y.z.2
and      x.y.z.5, x.y.z/6 (but not from x.y.z.1/3)

any ideas? does the white space has too be tab instead of space
(that seem do't make a differiece either in my case )
