Gus,

	The -o parameter should point to your rules directory.  If your
rules aren't in /etc/snort, change that to /etc/snort/rules or to
wherever your rules are located.

Subject: [Snort-users] problems updating rules with oinkmaster


I am running Snort 2.1.0 and Oinkmaster 0.9 my rules were updating fine,
but 
recently I do not seem to be getting any new rules when I attempt to
update 
them.  I have pasted what I get when I run the update script.  Any
ideas?  
Thanks!
