Looks at the ports that portscan2 reported. Sometime clients browsing
websites cause portscan2 to trigger based on the fact that some browsers
initiate a new connection (and thus, new port) for each image. If you
haven't change the config, there should be a scan.log file in your snort log
directory which will have more info.

Subject: [Snort-users] Portscan 2 question

I have a weird problem with 2 entries in my ACID database. Apparently,
my server did a port scan on a remote machine. The problem is that no
one here initiated a port scan. The database lists my server IP as the
source and lists a dest IP. This is listed as a spp_portscan2. Does the
new snort scan other machines on the Internet? I don't want any issues
with other services because they think I'm port scanning their network.
