Re: Host Attribute Table Question
From: Joel Esler <jesler () sourcefire com>

If Snort has an entry in the host attribute table for the IP that the traffic is going to, Snort will use that entry 
for reassembly.  Otherwise it uses the snort.conf config.

If I have a host attribute table that has windows and linux hosts in it, and my snort.conf looks like the below text; 
what does snort do when it see’s traffic for one of the linux hosts in the table?
Does it still give it the windows stream5 policy?
