Just add "not host nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn" at the snort startup parameters:
ex: "snort -dev -c snort conf not host 192.168.200.3"

Subject: [Snort-users] How to ignore ping/icmp traffic to-from a host


I'm a bit of a newbie with snort, so pardon my ignorance.  I have
tried to find this info elsewhere with no success.

I am trying to tell snort to ignore icmp/ping traffic to and from a
specific host.  This host is used at 10 minute intervals to ping a
bank of servers to monitor up/down status.  As snort is currently
configured, this ping sweep triggers a snort alarm.  Can anyone help
me out with the appropriate entry in the rule set?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Steve
