This is an old .conf file, but you might try it - http://www.0xdeadbeef.info/conf/snort.conf.190

From the .conf file:
#########################################################
# Section #1 (Variables): Service ports
#
# This allows Snort to look for attacks directed to a
# specific application only on the ports that it runs on.
# This also improves overall performance of Snort.
#
# Ports you run Web servers on
var HTTP_PORTS 80
# Ports you want to look for shellcode on.
var SHELLCODE_PORTS !$HTTP_PORTS
# Ports you run Oracle servers on
var ORACLE_PORTS 1521

#########################################################
# Section #2 (Preprocessors): stream4
#
# Stateful inspection and stream reassembly for Snort.
# This preprocessor defeats stick/snot attacks against
# TCP rules and can statefully detect various portscan
# flavours, TCP fingerprinting, and more (see original
# snort.conf for further details). You can safely turn
# off "detect_scans" if you feel it's too noisy.
#
preprocessor stream4: detect_scans, disable_evasion_alerts
preprocessor stream4_reassemble


#########################################################
# Section #2 (Preprocessors): http_decode
#
# HTTP traffic normalizer. This preprocessor normalizes
# HTTP requests by converting any %XX character to his
# ASCII equivalent. Now supports unicode, iis_alt_unicode,
# double_encode, iis_flip_slash and full_whitespace
# (see original snort.conf for further details).
#
preprocessor http_decode: 80 unicode iis_alt_unicode double_encode iis_flip_slash full_whitespace
