Subject: [Snort-users] HOME_NET, EXTERNAL_NET,var negatation and
unwanted triggered rules

Hi everybody,

I try to setup a Snort installation onto my firewall, but in a standard
one, too much rules triggered, so I am trying to reduce unwanted
triggered rules to the minimum to only get the serious security
problems.

To do that, I enable only one rules set (snmp.rules) because this rules
set triggered a lot of time because of my nagios/cacti monitoring
servers using snmp v2, and try to set up EXTERNAL_NET and HOME_NET to
avoid logging of SNMP message from local workstation to local
workstation.

To do that, I set up as following :

var EXTERNAL_NET [!10.0.0.0/8]
var HOME_NET [10.0.0.0/8]

include $RULE_PATH/snmp.rules

and also :

var EXTERNAL_NET ![10.0.0.0/8]
var HOME_NET [10.0.0.0/8]

include $RULE_PATH/snmp.rules

and comment all the preprocessor and all the other rules files.

But I still got the following type of alert :

in my BASE frontend.

Could someone help to figure out how to configure my NET variable to
avoid such alert to be logged.

Thanks in advance
