Snort Alert - What should I do?


I just recently installed Snort. I but in IDS mode and I have been getting some alerts according to Snort. Some of them are meaningless but others worry me.

Here's a URL to the alert log in HTML form:

http://drewkennerly.tripod.com/alert.html

Thanks in advance

In plain english it means 80.63.23.45 alerts 68.81.xx.xx because 80.63.23.45 is running out of resources for maintaining error-free connections, it's already dropping packets, or is about to drop packets.
