We like to use older rules with a newer snort only for a short time,
because of a migration.
Thanks for your quick response!
Kind regards

Yes, You can use older rules with a newer Snort, but not newer rules with an older Snort.

Why would you want to use older rules?  Can't you use the current ones?

Hi Snort-sigs
Does anybody know if it’s possible to use old snort rules with a newer snort?
Example: vrt-rules in Version 2.6 and a snort 2.8
Kind regards
