We use pfsense so it modifies the config accordingly. I’m trying to find a way
to change that line to ipvar HOME_NET Any

And not have it break anything within pfsense.

if this is like another firewall product that i'm familiar with, it may be that 
that line is supposed to be replaced with an include line which contains the 
name of another file that the firewall maintains with your WAN IP and possibly 
even your DNS servers...

where did your snort.conf file come from? is it one that was included within the 
mod you applied to your pfsense installation??

I’m wondering if this is a config issue or traffic setup issue. Currently my
internal network the ONLY thing that ever shows up is portscans. I can’t get
anything else to be looked at. Is this due to a Home_net and External_net being
setup wrong? My understanding is if I list Home_net to “any” then snort should
monitor that traffic.

Is the traffic that you /are/ alerting on only UDP or TCP too?
