[Snort-users] SnortCenter Configuration

Hi Roy,

I just can't find the mail in the archives right now, but if I'm not
mistaken are the rules on the net for some reason formated in a way that
snortcenter won't read them anymore (I think Stefan mentioned something
about a comment field but I could be wrong).
What I do is cat the rules into one big rulefile and upload that
manually once, then do the updates in little chunks.

Hope that helps,
