We have snort running on one of our servers which has a network 
interface that has a subnet configuration of || I want to 
enable a specific rule, for example a chat rule with the sid:2002027, to 
|| but I don't want the rule be active for 
||. What is the best way to achieve this?

|alert tcp any 6666:7000 -> any any (msg:"ET CHAT IRC PING command"; flow:from_server,established; content:"PING|20|"; depth:5; flowbits:set,is_proto_irc; reference:url,doc.emergingthreats.net/2002027; classtype:misc-activity; sid:2002027; rev:13;)

And also, the any keyword like the one in the above rule should be 
limited to ||. Otherwise it would affect ||. 
And I am trying to automate this because we can have many subnets and 
many different rules for these subnets.

Any advice would be great
