I am having trouble configuring pulledpork to download the latest subscriber rules...I am seeing the following behavior (from pulledpork.pl -v -c /etc/snort/pulledpork.conf)

** GET https://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2920.tar.gz.md5/<my_oinkcode> ==> 200 OK (1s)
** GET https://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2920.tar.gz/<my_oinkcode> ==> 302 Found (1s)

	A 403 error occurred, please wait for the 15 minute timeout

	You may also wish to verfiy your oinkcode, tarball name, and other configuration options

this occurs with either rule configuration 1 or 2 below and of course waiting 15 minutes (or 15 hours for that matter) does nothing

1) rule_url=https://www.snort.org/reg-rules/|snortrules-snapshot.tar.gz|<my_oinkcode>
2) rule_url=https://www.snort.org/sub-rules/|snortrules-snapshot.tar.gz|<my_oinkcode>

but if I change to rule configuration 3 below, it works

3) rule_url=https://www.snort.org/reg-rules/|snortrules-snapshot-2931.tar.gz|<my_oinkcode>

However, I am not sure this is the correct version for my platform (Ubuntu 12.04) and am fairly certain this is not the latest subscriber version.  BTW, how would one determine what the correct/latest version of rules are for their specific platform?

Any pointers are greatly appreciated.
