Reposting the same question without changing it isn't going to get you an 

Since I know nothing about WSP, WAP, or WTP, it would be impossible for me 
to answer your questions. Judging from the silence, nobody else here knows 
enough about them either.

In general, snort looks at things at the IP layer and up. If it's an IP 
packet, snort can be configured to detect it. Since snort has no built-in 
preprocessors fro WAP, WSP or WTP, you'll probably need to write some fancy 
PCRE statements to parse them.
