Hi all,

I am still working on my snort configuration so i am trying to add an  
ignore_scanners to my port scan detection. i have the standard in my  

preprocessor sfportscan: proto  { all } memcap { 10000000 }  
sense_level { low }

when i try and add ignore_scanners {}  and then try and  
restart snort I get this error below. i have hunted on the web for  
the answer but have not found it. i am using snort

ERROR: /etc/snort/snort.conf(234) => No argument to 'ignore_scanners'  
config option.
Fatal Error, Quitting..
