Snort Update Issue with Snort 2.8.6 pkg v. 1.31
After updating to Snort 2.8.6 v 1.31, I cannot update snort rules.
Error with the snort rules download…
Snort rules file downloaded failed...
Should I opt for manual update?
Please guide me.
Did you try and do a reinstall of the package? If not, check save your setting after a deinstall under the global options of the SNORT package and reinstall the package and then try to get the updates.
On august 9 (the day I updated to v1.31), i went for manual update to start the snort package.
Yesterday, for some time I was getting same error. But in the afternoon, I am getting message like we have to wait for 15 minutes and try again.
But today when I tried, got new updates in first attempt only.
I'm having a similar problem. I just updated to the most recent package, and snort won't download the rules. It says it's downloading them, but it only takes about 2 seconds… and only downloads the voip rules (those are the only rules showing up). Any thoughts?
I got it… in my case, after upgrading, the "Install basic or premium rules" radio box became unselected. Either that, or in a previous version it just didn't care whether the radio box was selected or not.
I had a similar issue - what fixed it it was Services / Snort / Global Settings / Reset button.
I had to reconfig Snort, but everything works great now. Just fantastic; love this package.
