See this response to your previous post.  Writing pass rules is, in
general, a less efficient method in the long run.  You should be using
suppress.  See this response to one of your previous posts:

If you must write a pass rule, just copy and paste the offending rule,
changing the source and destination accordingly.  Then start snort
with the -o option, so that pass rules are processed first.

Either solution is very simple.  Just read the documentation.  The
book is neat and all, but these are one- and two-line config or rule
