First guess would be to check for  "preprocessor portscan-ignorehosts: "
or "preprocessor portscan2-ignorehosts: " in snort.conf.

In fact, I'm far more worried about portscans originating internally,
because that means I've got problems - where as portscans from outside
seems to be the norm these days.
