Add a suppress entry in your threshold.conf

That's the correct way.

Snort pinpointed a weird (i think) behaviour.

My CC gateway periodically pings my ADSL router. this small network being
obviously considered as outside, snort raises an alert for each ICMP
packet. This is quite annoying as it is basically false alarm (isn't it?).

multiple solutions now:

1. add the network composed of the router and the external gateway to the

2. comment out the correct signatures in /et/snort/icmp-info.rules.

3. block ICMP packets between the router and the gateway.

which one would be your favourite ?
