I installed acidbase, snort-mysql, today. it's up and running, however I
still get this activity.

[snort]COMMUNITY SIP TCP/IP message flooding directed to SIP proxy

sorry about the formating, cut/paste.

i was advised to mv from 2800 to 2900. So i did yet still i get this
"message flooding alert. it's annoying, how to go about tuning and
turning off this alert.

ALSO, i would like the rules to be updated, and i do have oink code, but
it's listed oddly on snort.org. I don't know which one to use, nor how
to use pulled pork, or oinkmaster so forth. What is the best link for
this info, and what are the simple steps i need to take to get rules
updating with oink code:

      * 6d31c34a34b8e7d8a42751d16b50e3dda634xxxx
      * 6d31c34a34b8e7d8a42751d16b50e3dda634xxxx
      * 3b0c3089435a4ca349130adeae083ef3c1a5xxxx

Which Code works for sure? the first or last? I do not remember which is
newest. the first 3 are the same by the way.

here is my version of snort.
