A good place to start with snort rules would be here: http://manual.snort.org/node28.html

Hope this helps!

Hi All,
I have downloaded the Snort 2972 and also downloaded the snortrules-snapshot-2972.tar rules but the rules all seem to be empty containing just the copyright information. Here is an example of what icmp-info.rules look like

how do you enable ICMP rule in snort<http://stackoverflow.com/questions/29145221/how-do-you-enable-icmp-rule-in-snort>

I have configured snort but I need to enable detection rules in snort rule file. I am walking through the CEH lab and I am stuck at enabling ICMP rule. I have the file icmp-info.rules in C:\Snort\rules. I only see this when I open the file:

I am suppose to uncomment an alert in the file which should contain lots of alerts commented out. but mine doesnt seem to have that content. I have tried deleting and redownloading but still didnt see any changes in the file. Thanks
