i've just resolved the problem.
Now i understand how to use s2b and i've just convert a snort rule in a bro
policy. I redirected the stdout to a file .bro. The result is a file with
many row of code, but i can't use it as a bro policy (error: unknown
idetifier signature, at or near "signature").
The structure of the file is:

signature 549-8 {
  ip-proto == tcp
  src-ip == local_nets
  dst-ip != local_nets
  dst-port == 8888
  tcp-state established,originator
  event "P2P napster login"
  payload /.*\x00\x02\x00/

this is not equal to a classic bro policy.
How can i use it to create my own policy?
