Sorry (again), I was actually asking a general BPF question - not a
snort one. In fact it's about filtering traffic daemonlogger sees

However, are you implying that snort's "ignore_port: tcp 9000" would
only filter traffic that is going to a service running on port 9000?
That would be great if it's true... (snort has the advantage of
stream5_tcp over daemonlogger/tcpdump/etc)
