    Try a little bit later. The 'server' is overloaded.

    Before, he was overloaded.
    Now he is about to die.

    You have paid a subscription haven't you ?

    https://www.snort.org/products

    What version of snort are you running ?



  • You must have a valid Oinkcode subscription code. You can have either a free registered code or a paid subscription code. You must obtain the code from the Snort.org web site.

    Next, if you are running any type of RAM disk configuration on your firewall, make sure you have at least 256 MB of free space in the /tmp directory (and preferably up to 512 MB free). Snort needs available free disk space to download the rules tarballs and unpack them during the update process. Running out of space on /tmp will cause all kinds of weird errors. Look at the pfSense system log to see if any errors show up there related to disk space.

    P.S. -- the only way to tell if disk space was an issue is to review the system log. When the update process finishes (either successfully or with a failure), it will clean up behind itself and delete the files and sub-directories it created in /tmp. So simply looking at the dashboard disk space widget will not reveal the problem.
