If you want to limit/suppress this alert for a single host or network,
then take a look at your gen-msg.map. That will give you the GID and
the SID of the preprocessor alert. You can use that information to
create a threshold or suppression statement. If you do not want to
ever see the alert for any host look in preprocessor.rules and disable
the rule.
