505 error (RESOLVED)
I am installing Snort for the first time (following the instructions at https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=61018.0). I am trying to get my first rule set update (I have no rule set yet) and I keep getting a 505 error. Any hints as to how to get around this?
Downloading Snort VRT rules md5 file… FAILED!
Snort VRT rules will not be updated.
Server returned error code 505.
Cleaning up temp dirs and files... done.
Replying to myself - I regenerated the oink code and the update proceeded.
Nothing to see here … move along...
The problem seems to have been an extra space that got inserted when I copied and pasted my oink code from the snort website.
