[Snort-users] How do I stop all alerts generated by 'ssp_stream4'? (snort 1.9.0 )

These two options to stream4 should solve both of those:

disable_evasion_alerts, ttl_limit 0

Hi All,

I have a problem with my logs filling with unwanted alerts from
I'm using Snort 1.9.0 on Windows NT4 sp6 servers.
I do want packets reassembled but I don't want any alerts.
My 'snort.conf' settings relating to stream4 are:
	# stream4: stateful inspection/stream reassembly for Snort:
	preprocessor stream4: noinspect
	# tcp stream reassembly directive:
	preprocessor stream4_reassemble: both, ports all, noalerts

My logs are filling with the likes of:

[**] [111:18:1] (spp_stream4) Multiple Acked Packets (possible
10/21-10:08:41.883332 ->

***A**** Seq: 0xC4F73351  Ack: 0x1FAC281A  Win: 0x2238  TcpLen: 20

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here or what I'm missing please?
(I am assuming the above log entries do tie in to the stream4 settings
I run no rules files except one - local.rules which is only looking for
specific outgoing text.
