Snort - problems in rules - jamesdean
I think for most people everything was running great in snort until the updates that came out a week or so ago. At that point the messages in this forum started going way up in snort problems.
I would be guessing that nothing changed in our snorts, but snort.org did some rule changes that broke our installs.
Sad part is that we only have 1 guru of snort, Jamesdean. When he is busy, we are lost….
Honestly for me, what keeps me using pfsense, is proxy and intrusion detection. If not, I would switch to another system (maybe).... Right now squid/squidguard here is always iffy, but snort has been mostly rock solid.
So is there any way us small users can help you out james? I wish I could send you free time, but I am lacking that also. Small donation of something? Any hardware for testing you may need?
I had to leave for a while so I could work on paid projects.
I'll setup a paypal account so you guys can help me pay for my beer.
I like to build a vmware server so I can test all 4 versions of pfsense (pfsense 1.2.3 x86, pfsense 1.2.3 x64, pfsense 2.0 x86, pfsense 2.0 x64) for snort at the same time.
That way I wont have to reinstall pfsens on my Alix3D every time there is a issue.

Yes, please put up a paypal.
I was hoping for some lower end hardware wishlist :) All I've got is low end spare parts like an Athlon II.
I am hoping that people reading this will understand that we can all help in our own way. While Jamesdean helps programming, maybe we can all help with a little bit of $$. Even small home users such as me can and should poney up some $$ to help out. I know every couple of months I try to make a point of it.
I love opensouce, but sometimes people forget that there are real people behind the scene.
Dont stress its called a wish list for a reason.
Paypal button is now at the Snort Faq.
