If you have upgraded to SnortCenter V2 then this might be a little late
coming, but for your reference the SnortCenter V1 Rule download URL is
located in the config.php file.  Look for the following lines.
/* URL to snort signature file & references
 * e.g. $snortrules_url = "
<http://www.snort.org/dl/signatures/snortrules-stable.tar.gz> ";
$snortrules_url = " http://www.snort.org/dl/rules/snortrules-stable.tar.gz
<http://www.snort.org/dl/rules/snortrules-stable.tar.gz> ";

John -

I'm not sure that it's just a setting in a config file with the original
snortcenter. I upgraded to v2 to be able to support later versions of Snort,
and it has a configuration file setting for the download URL. If you're set
on the original snortcenter, try searching through all of the PHP files for
the update - I believe it woudl be in dbpars.php. I ran into the exact same
problem as you, and the upgrade to v2 worked.

Good luck!

anyone know where the internet update for rules in Snortcenter actually
goes? I can't seem to find it anywhere as a modifiable setting, and it
always comes back as "no update at this time...", which I'm finding hard to
believe as this system has been offline for a while.
