thanks Waldo. I have classification.config in /etc/snort.conf from the install
but don't see version# when I display it.

there is no version number in the classification.config file that i'm aware of...

the file should be just over 3K bytes in size and contain roughly 70 lines... 
one of those lines should contain the misc-activity classification entry... the 
entry you are looking for will likely be toward the bottom in the "# NEW 
CLASSIFICATIONS" section...
