Suricata does not update rules.

  • After adding the package and enabling ETO and Community rules, forcing an updating does not do anything. The signature status just says "Not Downloaded".

  • Give it several minutes on the page, then leave the page and come back to it.  DO NOT refresh as that will just issue the update command again.  Changes in pfSense 2.3 at the system API level due to Bootstrap have made the progress bars used by the old package code non-workable, so there is no visual indication of the download progress.

    Take a look at the log file on the UPDATES tab and see what it says.
