The orignal message included the following alert:

The sid is 2404, so my initial post was correct. 
Sid 2505 is " WEB-PHP phptest.php access"

But this does bring up an interesting point.  Carlton, a lot of the
windows rules have two versions, one for SMB over NBT (port 139) and
one for SMB over TCP/IP (port 445).  So if you are going to be
suppressing rules, make sure you suppress them both, if they are both
popping up.  The other sid is 2403 " NETBIOS SMB Session Setup AndX
request unicode username overflow attempt".

It's a subtle difference and i've been caught dumfounded more than
once, after suppressing one rule, seeing the other, but not realizing
it and thinking snort was somehow broken.

good luck
