Well, what does "reactive" mean? I just had a short look at it and those p2p.rules files seems to be covering what's mentioned at http://www.snort.org/vrt/docs/ruleset_changelogs/changes-2006-04-12.html. Tor isn't explictly mentioned there. But who knows what kind of rules were included in the meantime, so you should check that beforehand.

I am concerned since when I ran a Tor server with Smoothwall, there were
hundreds of entries logged in IDS (intrusion detection system).

What kind of messages? Would be nice if you could share them so that a Tor-specific rulefile could be created (if someone not already did that?)

Try the Yahoo! Mail Beta.

No. :-)
