[Snort-users] Rule precedence / multiple matches

Hi,

I've noticed that there are some rules which could/should all match the
same packet, but typically snort only reports on one.  Is there a
guideline which governs how this is done?  

For example, the X86 no-ops rule that catches a lot of the lpd format
string overflows at the moment does not trigger an equal number of
inbound port 515 rules, or rules which match specific other content in
those packets.

I see the content there, but, the rule never gets triggered...

Scott
