You should configure your snort.conf.
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
Customize your rule set
