Good Morning All,

I want to start tuning my Snort install so I can cut down on some of the chatter currently being seen in the logs. I would like to use whitelisting to help eliminate some of the legitimate server traffic chatter that I am seeing in Snort. Can I create a Whitelist rule for a specific system-to-system interaction (i.e. the IP traffic going between my BlueCoat ProxySG and ProxyAV) or do whitelist rules only work based on Source IP (i.e. I could whitelist the IP address of my ProxySG only). If it is possible to create a whitelist rule for system-to-system interaction, would it be possible for someone to provide me with some sample nomenclature that I could follow?

Thanks in advance!
