    This has been asked and answered a few other times in the last few days. Sourcefire is reorganizing their web site and a representative from there has stated that this is likely a side effect.

    Once their new site is up it should either fix itself, or a fix will need to be made to the package, but right now everything is in a holding pattern until they finish what they are doing.



  • im also encountering the same issue, now i know what is the cause.

    thanks for the reply

    more power to your team  :)

    I haven't tried it myself, but I saw a commit go in earlier today that was supposed to fix this.

    My guess is if you update your snort package again and then try to reload the rules, it should work.



  • looks like its fixed. i uninstalled and reinstalled snort on pfsense 1.2.2 and the rules download now.

    I added a note about this to the Doc Wiki for future reference.
