check nmap for what those options generate as packets... then you'll have to 
find or write rules to detect those packets... they may exist already and be 
disabled... i don't know... i had to specifically disable some ICMP rules in my 
locations to turn off alerts from them but i think they were from a different 
supplier... you might also want to use the community rules if you are not 
already... they might have related scan type rules...
