    Hi savagecat,
    Snort is and Intrusion Detection System.  What you are looking for is a firewall, or packet filtering.  This is usually along the lines of IPFW for xBSD, IP Chains or IP Tables for Linux or a function performed by a router or hardware firewall. Same for KazaA

    I know it can be done with a firewall or packet filtering.  There's got to be a way to do it with Snort.
