Sorry I meant to reply to the group.  

I have a question about this alert also, is it possible to monitor this
rule but exclude port 53 to 53 on only my dns servers?

I have two questions :
1 how can i stop this
10/02-00:15:28.424495  [**] [1:515:2] MISC source port 53 to <1024 [**]
[Classification: Potentially  Bad Traffic] [Priority: 2] {UDP}
xx.xx.xx.xx:53 -> xx.xx.xx.xx:53

i run a dns server, so this traffic should be ok. but i still want to be
notified about everything else "Potentially Bad".

Also in snort.conf I setup :
output alert_syslog: LOG_LOCAL5
but nothing goes to the syslog. however everything is logged to usual
I am running freebsd 4.4
