[Snort-users] Snort Center 2.x

I went out and got the latest copy of Snortcenter from Sourceforge 
(snortcenter-release.tar.gz from 2004-12-29, to be precise) when I saw 
this, so I could help you get it fixed. You'll at least need to update 
$snortrules_url in config.php to add an Oinkcode and reflect the new 
location, as discussed on this list by those using Oinkmaster. Just for 
clarification, once you register -- which is free and easy -- you can 
generate an Oinkcode for each IP that you need to download rules from 
with a very simple form in the User Preferences section of the new site.

In cases where forced downloading is not enabled (i.e. there is no 
"force" parameter in the URI for db_pars.php, and thus if(!$force) 
succeeds on line 32 of that file), you'll also need to have an updated 
MD5 download path. At the moment, we don't have a 
snortrules-snapshot-2.3.tar.gz.md5 file, but that should be fixed shortly.
