Pfsense reinstall hangin on rules download



  • I have reinstalled pfsense 2.4.1 to get the zfs file system. On restore of the config, pfsense hangs on "Downloading snortrules-snapshot-2990.tar.gz". I can download these rules manually just fine. Any help to get my pfsense back up and running is greatly appreciated. Thank you!



  • This has been solved. I had to remove the package lock file via the GUI and then hit the reinstall package button. This then completed the snort install but omitted all other packages. So I restored the config file one more time via the GUI. Upon reboot, the remaining packages were installed. All good but not straight forward.
