Look in your snort.conf file for  preprocessor portscan-ignorehosts and put
the ip of your bb host in there.

Subject: [Snort-users] Snort + BB: Ignore BB Activity


I'm running Snort 1.8.6 on FreeBSD 4.6-STABLE
with the Big Brother System and Network Monitor.

I have Snort logging to a MySQL database and I'm
using a script called ext-snort that displays the
Snort alerts on the BB display page.

Everything seems to work properly with the exception
of the BB server's activity showing up as spp_portscans
in my snort logs.  How do I get this to stop?
I saw in a previous email that someone recommended placing
the following line in the snort.conf file:
var EXTERNAL_NET !bb_server_ip
var EXTERNAL_NET [!ip_subnet.0/24]

I tried both, with and without the brackets and nothing seems to
I've searched through the "snort-users" archives and haven't
found anything that helps.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
