    Do you have IP REP files downloaded and then assigned on the WAN interface?  The files should show up under the IP LISTS tab (on the top row of tabs).  Then on the WAN tabs (lower tab row) you assign particular files to the interface on the IP REP tab.  Once you make the assignments, Snort will need restarting on that interface.

    I have the ET-Open rules "emerging-compromised-ips.txt" list assigned to my WAN, and I am getting blocks.  Just had a few in the last couple of hours.  The alert text will this:  (spp_reputation) packets blacklisted and the GID:SID is 136:1.
