Suggestion: look at the ignorehosts option for portscan.

Pass definitely will not work. Since pass is a rule, it can only work if the
offending traffic is matching a rule.

You might be able to suppress it, but you'd probably wind up having to suppress
all portscans...

It's generally best to configure your portscan plugins properly in the first
place. Actually, if you're monitoring an internal LAN, you'll probably just want
to turn it off or turn the thresholds way up.
