This has nothing to do with snort.

Someone tried to call a RPC service with the program number 300214 on your
host which was denied by the portmapper.

Obviously, your portmapper is compiled with tcp_wrappers, that can be configured
via /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny. You should find "portmap:" lines

To find out, what service the remote host requested, simply run "rpcinfo -p"
on your host and look for 300214 in the first row.
