Really? Never had a problem with that. Just created a small test file
with a duplicate rule, but changed ports. Snort reads both rules without
a complaint.

What version of Snort are you using that causes that error? Or is the
error caused by some third party app?


It is said that the Internet is a public utility. As such, it is best
compared to a sewer. A big, fat pipe with a bunch of crap sloshing
against your ports.
