[Snort-users] Customizing snort rules

Hi Edin,

I have properly defined the HOME_NET and EXTERNAL_NET variables??
The rules that are getting triggered are SNMP rules.i.e. whenever our NMS
management server polls some devices,the rule triggers.
I want to be able to disable these triggers for some specific IP hosts. The
SNMP rule should not be disabled and continue to look for SNMP traffic.


Thanks and Regards   

Simon

Hi,

I don't _really_ get your problem: Have you properly defined your 
HOME_NET and EXTERNAL_NET?

Could you please specify the rules that trigger?

Regards,
Edin
