create a variable named $TRUSTED_HOSTS like so
fill that line in as necessarry and add the !$TRUSTED_HOSTS variable to the
rule your wish to exclude those hosts from, then restart snort.

  Can you exclude specific hosts from triggering the alert in a rule?  But
still get alerted by that rule if any other hosts try the same action.

  Example you have a port scan on your network and you do not want to get
alerted by that host doing the scan but you do want to get alerted by anyone
else performing a port scan.
