Hi Matt,

I'm sorry to have posted the message to the wrong mailing-list..now I
have anderstand..:)

Thanks for your suggestions!

You know that the default in "snort.conf" for "spp_strem4" is

I have enabled "evasion_alerts" eaven if I did not know well what it
does. I know this is the wrong way to do things... but I was tring to
have the maximum control over the suspicius traffic..
At the beginning my idea was to enable "evasion_alerts" and modify rules
to avoid this control against the servers i know.
Onestly I do not know how to realize this..because I'm still studing the
preprocessors and rules syntax...is not so simple:(

Do you have any suggestions...?

Do you think is a god idea to have "evasion_alerts" enabled eaven if it
cause lots of alerts?
