I often get these with my 1.8.x version of snort. If you look at the 
traffic you'll see it's usually an outside webserver feeding data to a 
local client on a random local port, which in this case happens to be 2301.

A version of the rule using flows would be less likely to false on this, as 
it would realize that the port 2301 on your local machine is actually a 
client, not a server.
