[Snort-users] uricontent misbehaving?

It depends.  The uricontent keyword is linked to having the http_decode
preprocessor turned on (yes, I know it's not orthogonal).  Basically, if
http_decode isn't turned on Snort won't generate the URI data in the
packet structure and the uricontent keyword will operate exactly as the
content keyword does.  You also need to have your $EXTERNAL_NET set to
!$HOME_NET if you don't want to catch outbound traffic as well.
