Hi Simon,

You should configure your snort.conf.

For example:

Configure your server lists.  This allows snort to only look for attacks
to systems that have a service up.  Why look for HTTP attacks if you are
not running a web server?

Configure your service ports.  This allows snort to look for attacks
destined to a specific application only on the ports that application
runs on.

Customize your rule set

Best regards,
Rodrigo Ramos
