Flip Address

Hello

Can anybody tell me for what the flip Address field is used in the Custom Signature for IDS?

Thanks a lot

Re: Flip Address

The source and dest addresses in the sig will be flipped/swapped before the alarm is sent out. Not used much but generally so the return packets of an attack will show up with the source address as the source of the attack rather than the destination.
