[Snort-users] Rules just don't show up in SNortcenter

Hi Matthew, 
I had the same problem, the answer for me was:-

    The snort.2.0.0.tar.gz file has a strange ruleset, each of the files
    eg. ftp.rules, is missing a hashed out section called # $Id: .
    whereas if you download the latest ruleset then the $Id has returned
    and snortcenter loads & parses the rules fine.

Maybe this isn't quite the same problem, but hope this helps.

Daniel Clark,
