Hello John,

First, you must configure snort with flexible response enabled.

# ./configure --enable-flexresp

Next, add flexible response capability to the rules you wish to issue
resets to.

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HTTP_SERVERS 80 (msg:"WEB-MISC http
directory traversal"; flags: A+; content: "../";
reference:arachnids,297; classtype:attempted-recon; sid:1113; rev:1;
The above example will send reset packets to both the source and
destination address.  Alternatively, you can send resets to either the
source or the destination.  See the file README.FLEXRESP for more
