Snort wont update
I am running 1.2.3-RELEASE Embedded, I had Snort working fine but then I had to re flash the CF card and now it will not update.
I have Snort working with a manually updated set of rules but when I try the auto update this is what I get:
_Deletes temp files
Downloads the MD5 files
You are NOT up to date…
Stopping Snort Services...
There is a new set of Snort.org rules posted. Downloading...
Then after about 10 seconds:
Error with the snort rules download...
Snort rules file downloaded failed..._
I have tried, reinstalling snort, resetting all snort settings, trying another day (I have been trying for about a week)
I cant see what else to try, if I look in the snort temp directory I see all the MD5 files and the main snort rule file but its size is 0k
Forgot to say im no Snort package ver 188.8.131.52 pkg v. 1.35
This is still not working, I have even tried buying the VRT subscription but no joy :(

I think there's a SNORT re-write under way. Stay tuned.

The snort servers may have your ip blocked if you have updated to many times .
