and aborted it... i had spent some 30 minutes researching to be able to try to 
provide a good response... oh well... we learn something new every day ;) O:)

But doing this your way would suppress more then just the two way traffic.

IE:  if he wanted to suppress<->   with your rules,
it would also suppress<->

You could use threshold configuration for this.

I'm using something like this in threshold.conf:

#Suppress Stuff for Websense box
suppress gen_id 1, sig_id 2015561, track by_dst, ip

You have to make sure you get the dst and src IPs right...some rules
seem to trip them differently.  To be safe, you can always duplicate
the rules and interchange the source and destination IPs.

#Suppress Stuff for Websense box
suppress gen_id 1, sig_id 2015561, track by_dst, ip
suppress gen_id 1, sig_id 2015561, track by_src, ip

You could write a local.rules rule to allow the traffic between the
two hosts on that port (copy the rule that's hitting, change to pass
and change the IPs) or you could do a BPF filter for that traffic.

I myself like the local.rules option, so that if it hits on another
rule, or different type of traffic you won't miss it like you would
with the BPF.

Hi All,
      I know you can suppress a rule by either source or destination ip, but is there a way to suppress a rule 
from a known ip to another known ip? On one sensor I'm getting a excessive amount of hits on one preprocessor 
rule from a specific ip going to another specific ip.  I still want this rule to trigger but just not on this 
case from ip A to ip B.
